„Fidelity Matters“ Record Grading System

S
(SEALED)

The record is factory sealed and never opened.  It is assumed to be in mint condition, however it cannot be guaranteed by us until the seal is removed and record examined.

M
(MINT)

The record exhibits no defects, marks or any other indication of being handled or played. Even smallest marks disqualify the record from this category.

We do not use this grade, as even inserting or removing the record from the inner sleeve may cause superficial marks on the vinyl.

NM
(NEAR MINT)

Visual grading: The record is virtually flawless, looks near new. Very minor and barely visible scuffs may be permitted, but no scratches. Labels are clean, without any writing or damage.

Play grading: The record plays with no audible noise. Just an occasional, light tic may be permitted.

EX / VG++
(EXCELLENT / VERY GOOD ++)

Visual grading: The record may have some minor scuffs that are not feelable with the fingertip. Few non feelable hairlines may be present but the record has excellent luster. Labels are unmarked.

Play grading: The record plays excellent, any light marks are not audible. Few light tics at times are permitted but nothing obvious interfering with audio quality.

VG+
(VERY GOOD +)

Visual grading: Some visible surface marks, minor scratches and scuffs (none of them is deep or obviously feelable). Vinyl still has good luster. Labels may have some minor imperfections but otherwise clean.

Play grading: Marks on the vinyl have minimal impact on the sound quality, the overall listening experience is still very enjoyable.

VG
(VERY GOOD)

Visual grading: Vinyl has some feelable scratches (although not deep) and multiple scuffs.

Play grading: Surface marks cause minor surface noise, light groove wear is audible. Most of the time the interference is below the level of the music. There are no skips, no repetitions.

G
(GOOD)

Visual grading: The record has deeper scratches and overall wear. Labels are significantly damaged.

Play grading: Surface noise is disturbing most of the time even though the record will still play through without skips.

P
(POOR)
