GRADING: I try to give an accurate representation of the record with a numerical value. I infer that the records should play their visual grade. I have given a numerical grade to correspond to typical record grading for the approximate percentage of wear. For example, excellent/85 means the disc should have about 15% wear/marks from a NEW record. Sealed records should be new. By looking at the photos you can find band info and song titles.
MINT = 100
NEAR MINT = 92-99
EXCELLENT/NEAR MINT =89-91 (borderline near mint)
EXCELLENT = 82-88
VG+/EXCELLENT = 79-81 (borderline excellent)
VG+ = 72-78
VG/VG+ = 69-71 (borderline vg+)
Go to my FEEDBACK RATING and look at my ITEM AS DESCRIBED rating. I am amongst the BEST ON EBAY! I try to make it like you are actually holding the item in your hand and this numerical system allows you to get the best idea of exactly what you are buying. And really, isn't that what is truly important? I point out details and don't hide them like other ebay sellers!

FINALLY: If you want to know about me, my grading or other store info then click on the me icon above next to my feedback rating. I do not sell new or newer reissue lps. The Archives I am liquidating have been sitting on shelves for at least 15 years. All my lps are vintage unless otherwise noted. Unless I am confident of my facts (and even then I've been wrong) I do not try to distinguish which pressing it is or fill you full of blather about the lp. I prefer to let you look at the photos and description and do your own research as to the desirability of each piece. I strive through photos to give the most accurate representation of records on ebay. I take photos of the covers, labels and other pertinent details. I do occasionally misspell and make cut/paste/ and other stoner mistakes, and I appreciate when others help me out. GOOD LUCK!
I AM AN HONEST AND SQUARE DEALER. I STAND BEHIND MY PRODUCT AND GRADING/PHOTOS.......I DO BACK EVERYTHING I SELL. JUST EMAIL ME IF YOU EVER EXPERIENCE A PROBLEM AND I'LL MAKE IT RIGHT.
Oh, and the usual not so fine print: Washington state residents must pay 9.3% sales tax. I try to invoice within 48 hours. Please pay within 10 days of invoice. Shipping is normally done one to two times a week BUT..... I have set my shipping time to 5 days due to the volume I am dealing with this month. Would you like feedback? Then go ahead and give me feedback and email me and I'll return the favor.
