All grading is very strict adheres to Record Collector specifications.
All vinyl is examined closely under a strong light play tested when possible.
MINT CONDITION As good as a copy you would buy from a shop MINT
NEAR MINT CONDITION Very nearly mint just slightly under, maybe a couple of very, very light paper sleeve scuffs that can only be seen under strong light. SOME WOULD CLASS THIS AS MINT. This disc has been played a couple of times at most. Cover is virtually perfect - very minimal wear only.
EXCELLENT CONDITION A clean tidy copy that shows virtually no defects. Maybe one or two light needle scuffs or light sleeve removal marks that can only be seen under strong light. There will be no scratches. Play will be near perfect with no distortion. Cover will be very nice with maybe very minimal creasing, ring wear or edge wear.
NEAR EXCELLENT CONDITION You can tell this record has been played a few times but it has been well cared for. There will be minor surface marks only that barely detract from the sound quality. Cover may have slight creasing or ring wear. A very serviceable copy that you will be pleased with.
VERY GOOD CONDITION A well played but serviceable copy. There will be a few marks on the vinyl, but they won t be nasty scratches, just relatively light needle scuffs and sleeve removal marks, they will be noticeable but won t detract from play too much. Cover will show signs of storage/ ageing, e.g., creasing, slight folding, spine wear, ring wear or sticker tears. The record will not be trashed
