Our Grading System -
Mint [M]: Absolutely perfect in every way - certainly never played,
possibly even still sealed. (More on still sealed below). Should be
used sparingly as a grade, if at all.
[NM or M-]: A nearly perfect record. Many dealers won't give a grade
higher than this implying (perhaps correctly) that no record is ever
truly perfect. The record shows no obvious sign of wear. A 45 rpm sleeve
has no more than the most minor defects, such as almost invisible ring
wear or other signs of slight handling.An LP jacket has no
creases, folds, seam splits or any other noticeable similar defect. No
cut-out holes, either. And of course, the same is true of any other
inserts, such as posters, lyric sleeves, and the like. Basically, Near
Mint looks as if you just got it home from a new record store and
removed the shrink wrap.
Very Good Plus [VG+]:
Shows some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous
owner who took good care of it. Record surfaces may show some slight
signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that
don't affect one's listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect
the sound are OK.The label may have some ring wear or
discoloration, but is should be barely noticeable. The center hole is
not misshapen by repeated play. Picture sleeves and LP inner sleeves
will have some slight wear, lightly turn-up corners, or a slight
seam-split. An LP jacket my have slight signs of wear also and may be
marred by a cut-out hole, indentation or corner indicating it was taken
out of print and sold at a discount.In general, if not for a
couple of minor things wrong with it, this would be Near Mint. All but
the most mint-crazy collectors will find a Very Good Plus record highly
Very Good [VG]: Many of the defects
found in a VG+ record are more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise
is evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during the
song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise.
Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as will light scratches deep
enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound.Labels
may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue)
attached. The same will be true of picture sleeves or LP covers.
However, it will not have all of these problems at the same time, only
two or three of them.
Good [G], Good Plus [G+]:
Good does not mean bad! A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be
put onto a turntable and will play through without skipping. But it will
have significant surface noise and scratches and visible groove wear.A
jacket or sleeve has seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the
spine. Tape, writing, ring wear or other defects will start to overwhelm
the object. But if it's something you have
been seeking for years, and the price is right, get it.
