1969 Atlantic SD 8216
Vinyl: VG ~ VG+( A lot of scratches, couple-can be felt to the touch. Sound- mostly- VG+)
MINT-Perfect, Flawless. You will seldom see me grade records mint(only sealed records)
the highest grade, plays like new. No marks, scuffs or scratches on the record. The cover
should be in like new condition with little or no wear.
EXCELLENT-Almost like new, maybe a mark or two on the record, but it should still sound like new. Vinyl looks shiny and clean. Dynamics, Clarity and Fidelity should all be excellent on the vinyl. The cover may have some wear, but certainly no ring wear or major marks or damage on the cover. Most collector examples.
VERY GOOD + A Beautiful Album, Some wear on the record. Some marks, scuffs or light surface scratches, certainly no skips or constant ticks when playing. Fidelity and Dynamics should be excellent. The cover can have some light wear, ring wear or bruised corners.
Very Good Well
worn record, has scratches, "ticks" and surface noise. Will play with
fidelity, but background noise will be present.
Cover has ring wear, seam splits, and writing sometimes.
of wear to the record, skips and scratches are certain. Deeper scuffs
are present. A record that has seen better days! Record still plays, but
gone is the fidelity and dynamics that make vinyl magical. Not a cover you would
want to frame. Only to be bought to sustain a need until a better
example is found.
