I will be listing several other 78's
in the near future.

Standard gradings
  • M: mint record, should be unplayed
  • M-: looks M but might have been played once or twice.
  • E+: Plays like new, with very, very few signs of handling, such as tiny scuffs from being slipped in and out of jackets.
  • E: Still very shiny, near new looking, with no visible signs of wear, but a few inaudible scuffs and scratches.
  • VG+: An average condition 78 in which scuffs and general use has dulled the finish somewhat. Wear is moderate but playing is generally free from distortion. Surface noise not overly pronounced.
  • VG: Moderate, even wear throughout, but still very playable. Surface noise and scratches audible but not intrusive.
  • VG-: Quite playable still, but distortion and heavy greying in loud passages. Music remains loud in most passages. Surface noise and scratches well below music level.
  • G+: Grey throughout but still serviceable. Music begins to sound muffled. Heavy scratches.
  • G: Quite seriously worn and scratched, but music level is still higher than surface noise.
  • F: Most of music remains audible over surface noise, but listening now uncomfortable.
  • TOL: Tear On Label.
  • WOL: Writing On Label.
  • SOL: Sticker On Label.
  • SOL-R: Sticker On Label-Removed.

All my records are cleaned and spot-checked.

On Sep-01-17 at 17:48:56 PDT, seller added the following information:

  • I just noticed some light edge flaking on about 1" not affecting play. The flaking is far away from the recorded grooves, not even in the lead in and is barely visible. Otherwise, this is a pristine record! If you wish to cancel your bid, please let me know.
