Grading

Our aim is to get every record graded as described, but occasionally we may not always get this right, if you feel that this is the case then please contact us
and we will endeavour to put things right for you.

Mint+ The record is in mint condition or minimal plays with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality. The cover and extra items such as lyric sheet, booklet or poster are in perfect condition.

Excellent. The record shows some signs of having been played, but there is very lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.

VG++ The record has been played quite a few times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite some light surface marks and occasional scratches. Normal wear and tear on the sleeves and cover without any major defects is acceptable.

VG+ The record has been played many times, but displays no real major deterioration in sound quality, despite some light surface marks and occasional scratches. Might be a few crackles and pops. Normal wear and tear on the sleeves and cover without any major defects is acceptable.

VG The record has been played so much that there may be some distortion and displays deterioration in sound quality. The covers may well suffer from folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discolouration. Normal wear and tear on the sleeves and cover without any major defects is acceptable.

Good  The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated. Perhaps with some distortion and major scratches. The covers could be stained, torn and or/defaced.
