Thanks for looking! Goldmine Grading System
(Edited from Goldmine, Makula's guidelines and EX grade added
) MINT (M)
Absolutely perfect in every way. Mint should never be used as a grade
unless more than one person agrees that the record or sleeve truly is in
(I only use this grade for sealed records.) NEAR MINT (NM OR M-)
records are shiny, with no visible defects. Records and covers look
almost new. When played, there should be almost no surface noise (NM
records don't have to be never played; a record
used on an excellent turntable can remain NM after many plays if the
disc is properly cared for. NM covers are free of creases, ring wear and seam splits of any kind. VG++ or EXCELLENT (EX)
Essentially a grade in between VG+ and NM. Records
may have one or two visible imperfections, but these will be
of a purely cosmetic nature (i.e. sleeve scuffs or other superficial
marks) and will not affect play. A VG++ record will have no scratches
and play well with little distraction from sound. Covers will be just
shy of NM, due to a few too many imperfections. Still very clean and
sharp. VERY GOOD PLUS (VG+)
records may show some slight signs of wear, including light
scuffs or very light scratches that do not affect the listening
experience. A record that has been enjoyed but well-cared for. VG+ is
the most common acceptable grade for a used record. Records should have
no feelable scratches, and no repeating tics or annoying distracting
noise when played. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are OK. VG+
covers should have only minor wear. A VG+ cover
might have some very minor seam wear, small creases, or shelfwear, but
no writing or splits.
VERY GOOD (VG)
records have more obvious flaws than their counterparts in better
shape. They lack most of the original gloss found on factory-fresh
records. May have visible groove-wear/marks or feelable scratches. When
played, a VG record has surface
noise, and some scratches may be audible. The music can still be
enjoyed, but upon listening, the surface noise is evident, and can
occasionally be distracting. Records will not skip, or jump in the
VG covers will have signs of human handling. Ring wear in the
middle or along the edges of the cover where the edge of a record would
reside, is obvious, though not overwhelming. Some more creases might be
visible. Seam splitting will be more obvious; it may appear on all three
sides, though it won't be obvious upon looking. Someone might have
written or it or stamped a price tag on it, too.
