There are detailed descriptions of our vinyl grading system below. A couple of things to be mindful of when considering record grading: We are not able to play test all records. There are manufacturing defects that are not able to be detected visually. If by rare chance you discover such a hidden defect or any other problem, return the item and a refund will be issued once the the defect or problems have been confirmed.
|NM: (Near Mint)||Nearly new condition. The record or jacket appears to be un-played and displays a very minimum of handling wear.|
|VG++: (Very Good)||A record that has a few visual imperfections that will not affect the sound.|
|VG+||More surface marks than the VG++ grade. The record still has a minimal amount of play wear with few audible imperfections.|
|VG||The record will have more surface scuffs and marks than the above grades. Expect to hear some surface noise and a few clicks or pops here and there.|
|VG-||The records will have some deeper audible scratches. There will be more consistent clicking and popping than the VG grade and play without skipping.|
|G (Good)||The record will have heavy wear, deep scratches and very apparent surface noise, clicks and pops.|
