Visual & spot-listening


Please, read them!<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" />


M: Mint Only when the record is sealed


NM: Near Mint

Record = is as good as new and still very shiny. Some very light signs of usage are possible

Sound = excellent with maybe an occasional minor surface noise

Cover = as new with minimal wear


EX++ to EX

Record EX+ = still shiny with a few hairlines and some soft swipes.

Sound EX++ = still excellent with maybe now and then a soft tick  or a soft surface noise. Nothing that is infecting hear-play

Cover Ex++ = still very good with a bit wear, a small tag on the front-side.



Record = still shiny but you can see some hairlines and/or some small scuffs across the surface

Sound = is still good with sometimes a mild surface noise and/or some short patches of minor, sometimes, mediocre ticking with maybe a plop here or there. Hear-play can be slightly infected in some very small zones. Overall, the sound is still dominating these imperfections

Cover = is still looking good but there is some wear on corners, edges and/or spine. There can be some small splits (max 0,50 cm) next to the inlet. There is some surface-wear like ring-wear or maybe some discolorations


V => only when the record is very rare

Record = is not really 100 % shiny anymore. There are lines, scuffs and/or swipes across the surface

Sound = there is a moderate surface noise, throughout or intermittent, and/or some patches with serious ticks and/or plops. The record doesn’t skip. Hear-play is infected in some zones but the record is still fine for general listening, nothing more

Cover = there is real wear on corners, edges and spine. There are splits in the seams, serious ring-wear or surface-wear. Look at the photo to have a better idea of the condition
