Grading Criteria based on others found online:


Mint (M) has never been played sleeve looks like new (will only use this if I know it’s never been played) 

Near Mint (NM) minimal signs of play on the record the sleeve will have minor wear only maybe slight ring wear but artwork will look very crisp labels will have minor signs of play if any 

Excellent (EX) some signs of play may be a light scratch but this will not affect play in any way, the sleeve may have signs of wear but no more than three minor faults no ink should be present Labels will be free from ink may have some spindle marks 

Very Good Plus (VG+) more obvious signs of play, again there should belittle or no effect on play might be noise on track changes but dynamics will be unaffected, sleeve may have some tearing to edges but artwork must remain crisp no more than three major faults or six minor no ink Labels may have more signs of play and wear 

Very Good (VG) as above but record may show even more noise on play may have scratches which effect play still should play through sleeve and labels may have ink present 

Good (G) Play will definitely be effected by the condition of this record but it is still usable sleeve will have lots of wear and tear 

Poor (P) unplayable collection filler only Art work Will Be torn damages and or flaky
