This is a 45 RPM record recorded in 1955 by Elvis Presley with Scotty Moore and Bill Black accompanying on the Sun label, number 223. This is one of Elvis' original recordings on Sun records and it is the original pressing of the record and not a re-issue.
Side one contains "Mystery Train", while side two is "I Forgot To Remember To Forget".
The label is VG (shows surface wear and red mark on side one).
The record is VG (lots of surface scratches, no deep, plays well).
Sealed: Original plastic seal still intact, so record is unplayed. Could refer to shrink-wrap on outer jacket, or to inner plastic sleeve some companies sealed.
Mint: I consider sealed as this grade.
Near Mint: Close to new condition. Vinyl surface is shiny. Disc appears to have been rarely, if ever, played. No scratches or obvious marks.
VG++: (very good plus plus) Played, but well cared for. Vinyl surface is shiny. May show minor evidence of use (for example, a small mark here or there), but nothing that would upset most people who aren't mint fanatics.
VG+:(very good plus - also known as 'excellent') Disc may show a few scuffs or surface scratches, but nothing too serious. Disc may have begun to lose a little of its shine. Still in above-average condition and very enjoyable.
VG:(very good) A medium grade. Played a lot by a non-collector. A lot of surface shine may be gone. Disc may show numerous scuffs or surface scratches, but no deep gouges or cracks. Should play enjoyably with no skips or sticks.
VG- & G+: (very good minus and good plus) These two grades are in-between 'g' and 'vg'.
G: (good) Special note to new collectors: "good" is a LOW grade for a record. It means "good" in the sense that if it were any worse, it would be no good to anyone. A "good" record will show a lot of wear, and probably have no surface shine. It may have numerous surface scratches or scuffs, and have a lot of surface noise. Still, it should play through with no skips or sticks and be reasonably enjoyable. Many older records that look "good" play surprisingly well.
All records are shipped in a paper sleeve along with an outer plastic sleeve.
