Records are dispatched in Padded Mailers with corrugated LP card stiffeners to prevent damage.
If you require your records to be professionally cleaned (I use a Clearaudio Matrix machine),
please inform me before shipment as there is a £1 charge per LP for this additional serviceHere is your chance to own the Original vinyl pressing produced before the original Master Tape had a chance to deteriorate.
Original pressings have the drive and excitement many later or new 'audiophile' pressings strive but often fail to achieve.
They can sound rather dull and lifeless compared to the Original First Edition and Pressing.

(possibly a little bit of laminate lift) and maybe a few extra items on the packaging,
such as cellotape or pen ink etc. However, it will have no rips, splits or tears unless stated.VERY GOOD (VG+)

such as cellotape or pen ink etc - but without any major defects.GOOD (G+)
The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeable deterioration.
Usually with scratches and some distortion, it may even cause the stylus to jump or stick.
As well as normal wear and tear,
the cover and packaging will suffer from cuts and rips,
folding, scuffing of edges, splits and extra items,
probably with discoloration and / or soiling to the cover and packagingFAIR (F+)
The record is still just playable, but has considerable surface noise, distortion and scratches;
it will most likely cause the stylus to jump and may even stick in places.
The cover and packaging will suffer from major defects and will be torn,
stained and / or defaced - my lowest grade possible
