N: As new and unplayed
N-: Nearly Mint, but has been played. No visible signs of wear or damage
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.
E-: Still shiny but without the luster of a new record, few light scratches.
V+: 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.
V: Moderate, even wear throughout, but still very playable. Surface noise and scratches audible but not intrusive.
V-: 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.
G-: Music still prominent, but wear and scratch damage extensive
F: Most of music remains audible over surface noise, but listening now uncomfortable.
