Grading :<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
M = Mint - as new, no signs of use.
NM = Near Mint - visually superb, but not quite mint, maybe spindle marks or very minor signs of use that don?t affect play - the cover has only minor signs of wear.
EX = Excellent - some signs of use, but very little lessening in sound quality ? the cover might have slight wear and/or creasing.
VG = Very Good ? no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch - normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items.
G = Good ? the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches - the cover and contents suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration, etc.
+ and - are degrees of the above.
All records have been visually graded very carefully. At least partially they have been audio graded (Linn LP 12 / Grado Master / stereo), especially for critical spots.
Audible defects are indicated.
In addition I would say that anyone who should be unhappy with an item description, please write me.
