Apologies for any reflections in the photos.
I will combine shipping if you buy multiple LPs or 12" singles at the same time, but please wait for me to send you an invoice before you pay.

My auctions are listed as "no international shipping" because of the excessive cost and delays these days. However, if you really want something and are willing to put up with both the cost and likely delay, please feel free to bid.

Goldmine Record Grading Standards:

Mint: Absolutely perfect in every way.

Near Mint (NM or M-): Nearly perfect, no visible defects, no surface noise. NM sleeves have no creases, ring wear, or seam splits.

Very Good Plus (VG+) or Excellent (E): May show slight signs of wear, slight warps, or minor signs of handling, that do not affect the listening experience. VG+ sleeves have only minor wear, such as a short split (one inch or less) at the bottom, or a cutout marking.

Very Good (VG): Lacks most of the original gloss found on factory-fresh records. Groove wear and light scratches are visible. The record has surface noise, and some scratches may be audible, especially in soft , but the noise will not overpower the music. Label may include minor writing, tape or a sticker. A VG sleeve has many signs of handling, such as obvious but not overwhelming ring wear, creases, seam splitting, or handwriting or stamps.

Good (G), Good Plus (G+) or Very Good Minus (VG-): Significant surface noise and groove wear, and the label is worn, with significant ring wear, heavy writing, or obvious damage. G/VG- sleeves have distracting ring wear, seam splits, or heavy writing.

Poor (P) and Fair (F): Records are cracked, impossibly warped, or skip and/or repeat when an attempt is made to play them. Sleeves are heavily damaged.
