What is your grading scale?
Vinyl Grading Notes (PLEASE READ):
SEALED (SS): still factory sealed and presumed mint
Mint (M): record is factory flawless and shows no signs of having ever been played
Near Mint (NM): record is still factory flawless and shows no visible signs of actual use but may have slight visual imperfections such as paper scuffs from record sleeve, etc. These imperfections, while visual, will not affect sound quality and the record's audio will still be flawless
Excellent (EX): record will show more signs of handling and use but the audio will still be powerful with virtually no detectable noise outside of the recorded sounds
Very Good Plus (VG+): A strong Very Good.
Very Good (VG): record will show signs of use both in terms of handling and having been played. Visual signs of use WILL likely include scratches, scuffs, etc. IMPORTANT NOTE: The audio can and quite possibly WILL reflect these signs of use, including the possibility of occasional pops and/or clicks. But AT NO TIME should any noise become so consistent as to overpower the music itself.
Very Good Minus (VG-): A weak Very Good
Good (G): record will show heavy signs of use, including more pronounced scratches and scuffs. These scratches and other signs of use will certainly affect sound quality, and the record will almost certainly include pops, clicks, and may even possibly jump on at least one occasion.
Poor (P): record will be in very bad shape, and at best should really only be considered for reference purposes
