I use RC gradings, although I tend to undergrade, so that the buyer is fully satisfied - I only use the term 'Mint' if an item is sealed, So many of my EX+ grades might be considered 'Mint' by many . I also do not believe there is much point in just putting EX/EX or VG+/EX as this can vary hugely between sellers, so I try to put in as detailed description as I can

I have been selling records on the Net and in the real world for many years with top ratings on the likes of GEMM and MUSICSTACK, (As well as here on ebay), so please buy with confidence

When sending, all records and inner sleeves are separated from their main outer sleeves then both placed in poly sleeves , then in thick card, then in bubble wrapped envelopes for the best protection possible

The recent postage rises have meant that, reluctantly, we have had to increase the charge here. However, with the high quality packaging policy, we are still charging less than the cost to us!

All items are shipped within 2 working days of paypal payment (or cheque clearing) - Saturdays included!
