RECORD CONDITION GRADING
VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ....
(Based on the 'Goldmine' grading system adopted by The Record Collector's
Mint (M) - Unused, Unplayed record with all sleeves in
factory condition - 99% of the time we deal with used
records only and we will NEVER sell an opened record even if
unplayed as mint condition.
This does NOT mean the record may not suffer from static or
crackling, as new records are not guaranteed to be clean,
but mint will be 100% guaranteed to be an unplayed record.
Near Mint (NM) An opened record which may have been played
a few times only or not at all (shop stock for example or
demo / review records again not played). May have light
marks on the cover from handling or storage but no visible
Vinyl rarely played but may have static crackle from long
storage. It will have no obvious vinyl wear.
Very Good Plus (VG+) - (Some dealers describe this between
VG+ / VG++ to NM-, we feel this does not define anything
particularly useful or specific, therefore we try to
physically describe any apparent defects separately).
A played record with possible minor sound degradation, for
example crackle and maybe minor wear at quiet moments in the
recording, possible wear apparent at high pitches. Cover/s
in undamaged condition, possibly with light marks and/or
scuffs around the edges
Very Good (VG) - A played record. No skips or jumps when
playing, likely track noise or wear degradation but does not
seriously effect listening. Sleeves all intact and original
with no deep scratches but may be creased, show vinyl ring
marks and/or worn on some parts of the covers edges, front,
rear for example.
Good (G) - A heavily played record, record playable with no
skips or jumps but will suffer from crackling and wear and
likely to have vinyl surface scratches. Sleeves could be
bent, worn, scratched for example but all are intact with no
evidence of repair (glue / tape).
Fair (F) - A heavily played record, has surface scratches,
plays but will suffer with loss of sound quality, might skip
or stick, may be warped. Covers and sleeves are all with the
record, but likely to be worn and/or damaged, may have
repairs, tears or rips, likely to be of interest to someone
looking for a rare record or of specific interest but can't
pay mint prices.
Poor (P) - Record scratched and serious deterioration of
sound, may be warped, playable but expect playback problems
such as sticking and/or skipping and heavy wear. Sleeves
damaged or missing.
We try to supply records in Good condition or better, there
are times when we feel a record in worse condition may be
desirable to our customers and we will keep it in our stock.
All records are listened to but once only and not always
through the complete record (to prevent further wear),
played on a high quality record player before listing.
Record and sound quality cannot be defined in great detail
as each individual's perception of sound quality for example
differs. Therefore we will highlight any imperfections we
hear. The same applies to the visual check of the record
sleeve, internal sleeve and any other artwork, etc.... Payment
