Grading is subjective. I grade it the way I see it so if you don't like what you get for any reason just send it back for a full refund, including the postage you paid to have it sent to you. Return postage is on the buyer. I don't play grade every bit of every record, only if I see a mark that may cause noise. If I miss something, it is not a conspiracy to ruin your life. Act like an adult and just send it back without the nasty emails and "woe is me" attitude. I use regulation heavy mailers and remove the record from the sleeve. I have been buying, selling and trading ( yes, we used to trade records before Ebay) for 35 years and I want you to be happy with your purchase, just like I want to be treated fair when I buy records. I expect payment within 3 days of the auction close. Contact me before you bid if you can not meet this requirement. Priority mail is available at extra cost. Let me know if you want the expedited shipping.
