I have been collecting & playing traditional blues for over 40 years. Many of the records offered for sale have been in my collection for some time. Records are graded visually and confirmed by playing. I grade 78s conservatively using the VJM scale. This means records graded N- are nearly spotless and records graded G, although considerably worn, still play with music being slightly dominant to surface noise. Specific flaws will be noted along with the grade.
N- (almost New) E+, E (Excellent, low surface noise) E-, V+, V (Very good, medium surface noise) V-, G+, G (not so Good, heavy surface noise but still plays) G-, F (Fairly bad) P (Poor)
