GRADING: I try to give an accurate representation of the record with a numerical value. I infer that the records should play their visual grade. I have given a numerical grade to correspond to typical record grading for the approximate percentage of wear. For example, excellent/85 means the disc should have about 15% wear/marks from a NEW record. Sealed Records should be new and unplayed. By looking at the photos you can find band info and song titles.
MINT = 100
NEAR MINT = 92-99
EXCELLENT/NEAR MINT =89-91 (borderline near mint)
EXCELLENT = 82-88
VG+/EXCELLENT = 79-81 (borderline excellent)
VG+ = 72-78
VG/VG+ = 69-71 (borderline vg+)
Go to my FEEDBACK RATING and look at my ITEM AS DESCRIBED rating. I am amongst the BEST ON EBAY! I try to make it like you are actually holding the item in your hand and this numerical system allows you to get the best idea of exactly what you are buying. And really, isn't that what is truly important? I point out details and don't hide them like other ebay sellers!
RECORD/ITEM DESCRIPTION: Loretta Lynn "DON'T COME HOME A DRINKIN" lp on the US Decca Records label. It is catalog #DL 74842 stereo.
RECORD CONDITION/GRADE: The disc grades visually at near mint/97. The labels are near mint/98. The cover is vg+/excellent/81 with shelf, seam, spine, opening and corner wear along with corner dings, sticker damage at top right and light spine splitting/damage.
STANDARD FLAT RATE SHIPPING: which offers the ebay flat rate USPS media rate shipping anywhere in the U.S. at $4.00 for the first record and $1.00 per each additional Lp. This will include industry standard mailer and TWO industry standard PADS. Nothing else is included or expressed or implied with this rate. BARE BONES industry standard shipping.
PRIORITY / DELIVERY CONFIRMATION / OTHER SHIPPING: If you wish priority mail rate, special/premium packaging, delivery confirmation or any other special shipping needs then please email me when you are done purchasing from my auctions or ebay store and I can accommodate your wishes on your invoice. ALL ADDITIONAL SERVICES are charged at my cost.
IN ORDER FOR PAYPAL OR EBAY BUYER PROTECTION to protect your order it MUST SHIP WITH TRACKING! Your invoice will include the PRIORITY SHIPPING RATE which protects you the buyer! YOUR INVOICE will also include an OPTIONAL FIRST CLASS rate which if you chose to accept and pay that rate......THEN it is at YOUR RISK as there is NO TRACKING AND NO PAYPAL PROTECTION with the OPTIONAL FIRST CLASS RATE.
Many international buyers prefer to chose the first class shipping and I have no problem with that as it is silly to spend extra money needlessly on shipping. BUT! if you chose first class and your package does not arrive I expect you to HONOR your risk!
STANDARD FIRST CLASS INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Please wait for invoice. Cost is based on WEIGHT! You can email for SPECIFIC costs but the GENERAL RULE, NOT SPECIFIC! which can very due to WEIGHT! is about $16.00 for the first lp and about $4 each additional lp for USPS first class and $9.00 USPS FIRST CLASS to Canada. This includes industry standard mailer and TWO industry standard PADS. This rate ships at YOUR RISK! Neither tracking nor insurance nor paypal protection is available with this rate! If you wish paypal protection or to insure then it must ship at the more expensive priority rate WITH TRACKING!
It is dishonorable to hold Cranium's responsible for any loss whatsoever if the priority rate or registered first class at additional cost is not chosen!
PRIORITY INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING WITH TRACKING: This includes industry standard mailer and TWO industry standard PADS. This rate includes tracking. It also includes some automatic indemnity based on weight. Also additional insurance can be purchased based on weight and declared value. Paypal protection is included.
FINALLY: If you want to know about me, my grading or other store info then click on the me icon above next to my feedback rating. I do not sell new or newer reissue lps. The Archives I am liquidating have been sitting on shelves for at least 15 years. All my lps are vintage unless otherwise noted. Unless I am confident of my facts (and even then I've been wrong) I do not try to distinguish which pressing it is or fill you full of blather about the lp. I prefer to let you look at the photos and description and do your own research as to the desirability of each piece. I strive through photos to give the most accurate representation of records on ebay. I take photos of the covers, labels and other pertinent details. I do occasionally misspell and make cut/paste/ and other stoner mistakes, and I appreciate when others help me out. GOOD LUCK!
I AM AN HONEST AND SQUARE DEALER. EVEN THOUGH SOME OF MY LISTINGS HAVE A NO RETURN POLICY.......I DO BACK EVERYTHING I SELL. JUST EMAIL ME IF YOU EVER EXPERIENCE A PROBLEM AND I'LL MAKE IT RIGHT.
Oh, and the usual not so fine print: Washington state residents must pay 9.3% sales tax. I try to invoice within 48 hours. Please try to pay the same. Shipping is done one to two times a week. Would you like feedback? Then go ahead and give me feedback and email me and I'll return the favor.
