CONDITION / GRADE :
STILL SEALED! I ASSUME THE RECORD IS IN MINT CONDITION BUT THE COVER IS VG+ CONDITION OVERALL... STILL SEALED BUT DOWNGRADED A BIT DUE TO SOME OF THE SHRINK PULLED AWAY AT EDGES, FOXING TO BACK COVER AND LIGHT SIGNS OF HANDLING...
This record will be cardboard padded on both sides, then custom boxed. Every box is taped well and marked fragile, double taped at corners.
PayPal please, it is preferred. If you have another form of payment you’d like to use, please send a message and I’ll see if I can accomodate your request.
I use Goldmine’s grading system and am quite conservative when assessing condition.
SS = Still Sealed
any defects will be listed and/or photographed to complete the description
NM- = Near Mint Minus
just short of perfect - acceptable defects would include a hairline mark not detectable to the touch and not affecting playback, background noise is nearly silent
VG++ (EX) = Very Good Plus Plus
most records I will list fall under this grade, just short of NM- but may have a mark or contact wear to the label to grade it slightly lower, maybe a drill hole or saw cut, maybe a mark or name written on the label lightly, sound is still great, loud and near perfect, cover may have slight edge or corner wear, maybe slight ring wear
VG+ = Very Good Plus
a great record, sound is high quality though may have a few pops or clicks, overall very nice looking vinyl possibly with light marks & scuffs, labels may have a name or mark on them, possible light contact wear to the label, covers may have a small split but not large or gaping, edge wear on cover may show more than slight, may be a mark on cover
VG = Very Good
only records I will list with this grade would be rather rare or of higher book value, meant to sell as a filler until a better record comes along, vinyl may have feel-able marks but should play through without skipping, pops or clicks may be louder than usual, may have marks or wear on the label, cover may have open splits, wear on print, may have marks or other very apparent defects (all will be stated in description either by type or in the pictures)
SHIPPING PROCESS AND PACKAGING :
All records are packaged tight for safe shipping. Vinyl is shipped outside the original sleeve in a separate, often new sleeve. I custom package every record with plenty of padding.
45’s will be cardboard padded on both sides, then custom boxed. Every box is taped well and marked fragile, double taped at corners.
LP records ship outside their covers and sleeves to prevent damage. A custom box is built, and the resulting box is then taped well, marked fragile and double taped at corners.
78’s are first packaged between two pieces of 11” cardboard, taped well, then bubble wrapped. Additional bubble wrap is then laid out with void fill laid down, then the record sandwich followed by more void fill. This eventually makes a 4 to 5” bubblewrap ‘pillow’ which is then custom boxed, taped well, marked fragile and then double taped at the corners.
