record has been checked visually both under normal daylight and under a strong
under halogen spot-lamp. Every record I sell has been checked for its audio
quality and played through completely on both sides. I check to ensure that
they are flat on the rotating turntable.
grade all records using The Record Collectors grading system, visually grading
the vinyl surfaces, labels, inner sleeve and cover, adding a single (+Plus) if
I believe the quality is slightly better or (- Minus) if slightly under.
The Record Collectors Grading System:
MINT: The Record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or
deterioration in sound quality. The cover and extra items are in perfect
condition. Records advertised sealed or un-played should be mint.
EXCELLENT: The record shows some signs of having been played, but there
is very little lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging 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
the 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 much that the sound quality has
noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. The
cover suffers from folding scuffing of edges, of edges, spine splits,
