Up for auction is the following 10" 78 rpm record:

Frankie / Nobody's Dirty Business
Okeh Electric 8560 (Red/Gold label)
1928 / US Pressing /


Record is in V visual grade Condition.
I would grade this at a V+ visual grade, however there are two (2) laminate or interior fracture/cracks on the record - one at around 8 o'clock on the 'Frankie' side and a smaller one at about 8 o'clock on the 'Nobody's' side of record.
Labels are fairly clean. Gold-gilt print is pretty strong considering age.
I have provided audio samples of this recording for you to judge for yourself --
Please see photos for more detail.

NOTE: ALL 78s will be sent with a kraft paper sleeve specifically designed for 78s along with original sleeve if the record was found with it.

I grade according to the VJM Scale of grading.

N (78) M (LP).
As new and unplayed (there are virtually no 78s that can categorically be claimed to be unplayed).

N- (78) M- (LP). Nearly Mint, but has been played. No visible signs of wear or damage.

E+ (78) VG+ (LP). Plays like new, with very, very few signs of handling, such as tiny scuffs from being slipped in and out of jackets.

E  (78) VG (LP). Still very shiny, near new looking, with no visible signs of wear, but a few inaudible scuffs and scratches.

E- (78) VG- (LP). Still shiny but without the lustre of a new record, few light scratches.  LP: Some wear, scratches and scuffs, but no skipped or repeat grooves.

V+ (78) G+ LP. V+ is an average condition 78 in which scuffs and general use has dulled the finish somewhat. Wear is moderate but playing is generally free from distortion. Surface noise not overly pronounced. LP: Below average with scuffs and scratches on fewer than half the tracks. No skips or repeat grooves.

V (78) G (LP). Moderate, even wear throughout, but still very playable. Surface noise and scratches audible but not intrusive.

V- (78) G- (LP). Quite playable still, but distortion and heavy greying in loud passages. Music remains loud in most passages. Surface noise and scratches well below music level. LP: Lowest Grade. Audible scratches, etc. on more than half the tracks. Listening uncomfortable.

G+ (78). Grey throughout but still serviceable. Music begins to sound muffled. Heavy scratches.

G (78). Quite seriously worn and scratched, but music level is still higher than surface noise.
