dad was a private collector, he collected thousands and thousands of
records from 1950's to early 2000's, many are rarities, obscurities and
some are unique, I am not a dealer, just selling the collection now he
is unable to do so himself.

fully and it plays all the way through with no sticks, jumps

will describe any flaws such as wear to sleeves, scuffs, marks or
scratches to vinyl and describe them honestly, if you expect a better
condition than I have listed then you need to learn to read. I will
grade based on visual inspection under artificial light. PLEASE remember
this is Vinyl...even brand new vinyl can have clicks and pops...that's
part of its charm...if you want perfect audio without background
noise...how about CD's or MP3's?
