EXCELLENT The record shows some sign of having being played but there is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packing might have slight wear and or creasing.
VERY GOOD The record has obviously been played many times but displays no major deterioration in sound quality despite noticeable surface marks and occasional light scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects is acceptable.
GOOD The record has been played so muchthat the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The cover and contents suffer from folding scuffing, spine splits, etc..
FAIR The record is still playable but has not been cared for properly and displays considerable surface noise; it may even jump. The cover and contents will be torn, stained and/or defaced.
POOR The record will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise etc. The cover and contents will be badly damaged or partly missing.
BAD The record is unplayable or might even be broken, and is only of use as a collection filler
