Condition: I use VJM grading for all 78s

Visually: Playing surface: V+.  A couple lams. one tiny outer rim chip, slightest warp that does not effect play. 
Sounds: V+, plays beautifully with light noise below music and a light pop here or there.
Both sides play great!  What a combination of performances.
NJ Bidders:Under Satae Law, Revilla Grooves and Gear must charge 7% sales tax to New Jersey auction winners. This sales tax charge will appear on your invoice at the end of auctions.

My Reference and Grading Audio System:

Audio grading is done with a pitch perfect KAB Broadcast Standard Technics 1210 Turntable and a Grado 78C Cartridge designed for Mono 78 record playback. (If you love vintage records and don't have one of these you owe it to yourself to hear what it can do for your 78s)

Check out the KAB Broadcast Standard:

******Grado 78C specs so you can compare my grading cartridge to your listening cartridge:

The Prestige model 78C uses a three-piece OTL cantilever technology, oxygen free wire in the coils and a specially designed, high polished conical/spherical

3 mil. diamond mounted in a brass bushing.

          Amp is a Vintage Eico HF-81 set for Mono playback.  Speaker: Single Mono Vintage University Coax.  I feel this is a very close to authentic set up.  I grade with Bass and Treble settings at zero for the most reliable read of actual record quality
