After a misunderstanding recently I urge non-English speakers to read carefully all the information and if needed use an on-line translator.
Français : Après un malentendu récemment J'exhorte les non-anglophones à lire attentivement toutes les informations et, si nécessaire utiliser un traducteur en ligne.
Deutch: Nach einem Missverständnis vor kurzem habe ich fordere nicht-englische Muttersprachler sorgfältig lesen Sie alle Informationen und bei Bedarf verwenden Sie ein on-line-Übersetzer.

I grade the records condition visually only, unless I state what the record actually plays like and provide an audio MP3 sample. This is because I do not always have time to play everything, so bear this in mind.
I am strict with my grading so you can feel confident in my conclusions. My feedback will reflect this. Anyone unhappy solely with my visual grading can return item for refund. However if I have provided pictures and sound files then I do not accept returns on basis of condition.
As a general guide my grading conditions are based on Record Collector Magazine thus:
The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and any extra items such as the lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition. Records advertised as Sealed or Unplayed should be Mint.
The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.
VERY GOOD (VG)
The record has obviously been played many times, but displays 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, without any major defects, is acceptable.
The record has obviously been over played, and will probably display deterioration in sound quality, it will probably have lots of fine lines and the odd scratch. Wear and tear on the cover or extra items.
