WE USE THE FOLLOWING SCALE FOR OUR STRICT, VISUAL GRADING OF VINYL:
Sealed : Jacket is sealed shut in shrink wrap, disc is sold ungraded or "as is".
M- : A record in this condition appears absolutely unplayed and will bear no marks, sleeve scuffs, or scratches. We seldom use this grade.
VG++ : A record in this condition may have one or two visible imperfections, but these will be of a purely cosmetic nature (i.e. sleeve scuffs or other superficial marks) and will not affect play. A VG++ record will have no scratches.
VG+ : A record in this condition will have a few visible imperfections. These may include sleeve scuffs, superficial marks, and light scratches. The presence of a single light scratch is enough for us to grade an otherwise markless record VG+; a VG+ record will have no more than a few such scratches.
VG : A record in this condition will show the kinds of imperfections found on VG+ records but in slightly greater numbers. There may be a number of light scratches and other marks, but a VG record will not bear any scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail.
VG- : A record in this condition will have a number of visible imperfections; the presence of a considerable number of light scratches will force us to give a record this grade, as will the presence of even one scratch deep enough to be felt with a fingernail.
G : A record in this condition will have pervasive imperfections of varying degrees including both light scratches and scratches deep enough to be felt with a fingernail.
*WE USE THE FOLLOWING SCALE FOR OUR STRICT GRADING OF ALBUM COVERS:
M- : A cover in this condition will appear as though it were brand new and will display no imperfections, wear, or signs of handling. We seldom use this grade.
VG++ : A cover in this condition will appear as though it were brand new, but on closer inspection will display one or two superficial imperfections, most frequently very light wear to the corners or seams. A cover in this condition may also have cut-out markings such as a cut corner, a hole punch, or a saw cut.
VG+ : A cover in this condition will have a few noticeable imperfections or signs of wear and handling, but they will be neither prominent nor numerous. These may include a single split to the seams or spine that does not exceed 1" in length, light stains or discoloration, small crease marks, and faint shelf or ring wear.
VG : A cover in this condition will display the same imperfections and signs of wear and handling present on a VG+ cover, but they will be more pronounced or present in greater numbers. Splits to the seam or spine will not exceed 5" in length. The presence of a single pronounced flaw, such as extremely prominent shelf or ring wear, marking, staining, writing, or discoloration will cause an LP cover to receive this grade, as will the presence of an appreciable number of minor flaws.
VG- : A cover in this condition will have an appreciable number of minor imperfections and one or more pronounced flaws such as prominent shelf or ring wear, marking, staining, writing, or discoloration. Splits to the seams or spine will not exceed 8" in length.
G : A cover in this condition will display heavy wear and several of the pronounced flaws described above. Splits to the seam or spine may exceed 8" in length. We rarely sell records with covers in this condition.
