Vinyl: VG+: Extremely clean record. Very few scratches. Most of the wear shown in the pictures can be cleaned off. This may grade higher. Sounds excellent.
Jacket/Sleeve: G+: some binding and ring wear as shown in photos. It has some stains as well. It does have solid seams and the original sleeve. 3 Imperfections=G+ 2 I put a new jacket sleeve on this for extra protection. I put the vinyl in a new inner sleeve that will go alongside the original. I think the original is too dusty.
Grading standards: I am a purist and take grading seriously. Often, my grades are lower than others would give it.
M: unopened, sealed in shrink.
VG++: Must play NM. Up to 2 faint scratches depending on record. Often can have no scratches. I don't grade used vinyl NM. This is the highest grade I give non used vinyl.
VG+: May have some light scratches. Does not affect sound quality.
VG: Has alot of scratches. May have slight affect on sound quality. The slight affect is usually crackling present on quiet sections.
G+ or G: I do not sell vinyl in this condition. Usually consistent popping or crackling over loud sections would be consistent on records in this category.
M: Sealed, no storage wear.
EX: Sealed, slight storage wear such as minor ring wear.
VG++: Still in shrink, no damage.
VG+: May have one small imperfection such as some fading on the binding.
Vg: May have 2 imperfections such as ring wear and a signature.
G+: has 3 imperfections such as ring wear, signature, and a tear on the binding.
G: Has 4 or more imperfections. Generally is not a great sleeve for collectors. Usually structurally intact so it can still hold or preserve the vinyl only visible when examined under bright light. No crackling over quiet sections, no pops, skips, etc.
Sleeve: VG: Some ring wear. A couple Nick's on the binding. 2 imperfections=VG+. Has original inner sleeves.
