78 GRADING: We use the universally recognized VJM (Vintage Jazz Mart) 78 rpm system in grading our 78s with some streamlining as noted, eliminating some of the hair splitting on records graded V- and below (G+, G, G-, F).
Highest grade used. A record that might have minor handling marks but has no visible signs of wear. N, N- and E+ records will all be graded as E+.
Record has slight signs of handling and use but groove wear should be barely detectable and grooves should still be glossy and black.
Light groove wear with grey rubbing and light circular gray grooves starting to appear, but record should still retain glossy black grooves for almost all of the surface.
Grey wear, handling and groove wear more apparent, but much of the groove area will still have black.
Record is approaching an overall grey surface with uniform wear, but will still play well even though the level of surface noise and distortion could be distracting.
Record has wear throughout, and was subject to continual playing to wring more sound out of it, so even the grey is in a more advanced state of deterioration with groove walls disappearing.
This grade generally indicates poor condition on a good title.
