Most of my records are visually graded unless stated. Visually graded records are graded under a strong light. Played records have been fully played on a steepletone record player. If I have listed a record as visually graded you can request a played grading by messaging me. If you are unhappy with your purchase I offer a full 14 day refund providing the record is returned in its sold state.

All records are sent in quality mailers with stiffeners.
Record Grading 101: Understanding The Goldmine Grading Guide

These are absolutely perfect in every way. Often rumored but rarely seen, Mint should never be used as a grade unless more than one person agrees that the record or sleeve truly is in this condition. There is no set percentage of the Near Mint value these can bring; it is best negotiated between buyer and seller.

A good description of a NM record is “it looks like it just came from a retail store and it was opened for the first time.” In other words, it’s nearly perfect. Many dealers won’t use a grade higher than this, implying (perhaps correctly) that no record or sleeve is ever truly perfect.

NM records are shiny, with no visible defects. Writing, stickers or other markings cannot appear on the label, nor can any “spindle marks” from someone trying to blindly put the record on the turntable. Major factory defects also must be absent; a record and label obviously pressed off center is not Near Mint. If played, it will do so with no surface noise. (NM records don’t have to be “never played”; a record used on an excellent turntable can remain NM after many plays if the disc is properly cared for.)

NM covers are free of creases, ring wear and seam splits of any kind.

A good description of a VG+ record is “except for a couple minor things, this would be Near Mint.” Most collectors, especially those who want to play their records, will be happy with a VG+ record, especially if it toward the high end of the grade (sometimes called VG++ or E+).

VG+ records may show some slight signs of wear, including light scuffs or very light scratches that do not affect the listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are OK. Minor signs of handling are OK, too, such as telltale marks around the center hole, but repeated playing has not misshapen the hole. There may be some very light ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable.

VG+ covers should have only minor wear. A VG+ cover might have some very minor seam wear or a split (less than one inch long) at the bottom, the most vulnerable location. Also, a VG+ cover may have some defacing, such as a cut-out marking. Covers with cut-out markings can never be considered Near Mint.

Very Good (VG)
Many of the imperfections found on a VG+ record are more obvious on a VG record. That said, VG records — which usually sell for no more than 25 percent of a NM record — are among the biggest bargains in record collecting, because most of the “big money” goes for more perfect copies. For many listeners, a VG record or sleeve will be worth the money.

VG records have more obvious flaws than their counterparts in better shape. They lack most of the original gloss found on factory-fresh records. Groove wear is evident on sight, as are light scratches deep enough to feel with a fingernail. When played, a VG record has surface noise, and some scratches may be audible, especially in soft passages and during a song’s intro and ending. But the noise will not overpower the music otherwise.

Minor writing, tape or a sticker can detract from the label. Many collectors who have jukeboxes will use VG records in them and not think twice. They remain a fine listening experience, just not the same as if it were in better shape.

VG covers will have many signs of human handling. Ring wear in the middle or along the edges of the cover where the edge of a record would reside, is obvious, though not overwhelming. Some more creases might be visible. Seam splitting will be more obvious; it may appear on all three sides, though it won’t be obvious upon looking. Someone might have written or it or stamped a price tag on it, too.

Hi thanks for looking at another great record from my current stock. I use the record collectors rare price guide to grade my records. I tend to err on the conservative side to avoid disappointment. Rather than write a long spiel I have set out below a set of questions and answers which may help you.

Q. Is the record the same as the one in the photo?
A. Yes. I personally photograph every listing and you will get what is in the photo.

Q. How do you grade the record?
A. I use visual grading but also play most records before listing to avoid listing records that jump or have hidden defects.

Q. When will you send my record?
A. Normally within 24 hours 1st class unless following day is a Sunday or public holiday. I will send you a message on purchase to let you know I'm aware of your order and all is fine.

Q. What packaging do you use?
A. I use quality industry standard record mailers with stiffeners for protection.

Q. Why are some of your prices a bit higher than other sellers?
A. You get what you pay for. I sell the genuine article at prices that reflect their value. You also get comfort from a fast, friendly, trusted seller who will refund you without any quibbles if you're unhappy with your purchase.

Q. How do you determine market value?
A. A combination of the rare record price guide and ebay sales histories. The value is then ascertained for the record (and sleeve when applicable) and it is listed as such.

Q. I'm not happy with my record.
A. Sometimes happens as grading is subjective. Message me and if you want a refund I will provide it and pay your return postage costs.

Finally a little note about feedback. I value honest feedback but please think before leaving negative feedback. I'm not a major corporation just a small trader making a living for my family. Negative feedback damages both my sales and reputation. If you do have a problem I assure you we will resolve it to your satisfaction. Likewise, if you are happy (as I'm sure you will be!) please spread the word by leaving positive feedback.

Thanks again and please message me about any of my items.

Lastly. A quick note on the system I use. I grade the record and that's what you will see on the listing. Sleeves are graded separately and normally described in the listing.
M=Mint. Brand new. Has to be sealed before I use this listing.
NM=Near Mint. I am dubious of sellers who overuse both mint and near mint as on a technicality a record is only mint or near mint if it hasn't been played or barely played for NM. Beware anyone who tells you anything from before 2000 or so is NM. They are likely being either accidentally optimistic or deliberately misleading.
Ex=Excellent. Record looks great with no obvious markings or wear except for minor things such as very slight wear around the centre hole etc. I don't use this visual grade too often.
VG+ = Not quite excellent but better than very good. Looks good with some minor markings on the vinyl. Maybe thin scratches that don't effect playback. Minimal surface noise. Sometimes I will list a record that is otherwise excellent apart from a sticker on the label or initials etc in this grade providing the rest of the vinyl is excellent.

I try not to sell records below this grade although I will list some sleeves as either Good or very good. This is normally when the record inside is excellent or very good + but comes in a sleeve that has been damaged or repaired. Remember you are paying for the record but the sleeve is taken into account when pricing.
