That means that there's a grade between NM and VG+ = EX.
We may also,in some cases,add an extra + or extra - to a grade if we feel it necessary.
EX > Has a minor flaw (s) not easily visible
VG+ > Has a small visible flaw.
VG > Has multiple small flaws.
VG- > some serious flaws.
All flaws, such as ring wear, creasing, stickers, tears, handwriting, sticker removal damage, punch holes, saw-cuts etc, will be noted in the description part of the listing.
FACTORY SEALED > Brand new, never opened, perfect in every way.
NM (near mint) > Opened, may be played or un-played, no visible flaws.
EX (Excellent) > Played, but sparingly, vinyl is still very shiny,may have a few sleeve scuffs.
VG+ (Very Good +) > Played, but well taken care of, may have light scuff marks,light hairline scratches. Still shiny.
VG (Very Good) > Very played, will have minor scratches which will probably be audible.
VG- (Very Good -) > Played a LOT. Will have more than minor scratches, but will play through. Only listed if very rare. (Garage sale record)
G (Good) > Will play through but with substantial deterioration of the sound. We won't waste your time by listing any UNLESS, the record is extremely rare.
You, being a collector are surely aware that in some cases, old thick vinyl can appear visually scratched up, but sound a lot better than it looks when played ....we will play grade these records and make a note of this in the description if it occurs.
Labels will not be graded, but defects like handwriting, sticker damage etc will be noted in description.
Unless otherwise noted, all items are graded visually.
THANK YOU FOR SHOPPING WITH US !!
