The NICEST looking copy we've EVER had! However, we can NEVER be certain of the contents. Most people choose not to open sealed LP's. If you are looking for a guaranteed mint play copy, PLEASE search for an open one. Monday-Thursday 9:30AM - 4:00PM ET.
Since vinyl collecting is a new hobby for some of you, and grading seems to vary greatly between dealers, here is an overview of our grading system. We use a modified version of the Goldmine grading system. Our system adds a few additional grades for better precision. Please note: unless otherwise stated, our products are VISUALLY graded.With thousands of items available we just don't have the time or staff to play grade everything. We grade VERY conservatively, which makes for thousands of happy customers all around the globe!
All flaws worth noting to potential buyers scratches, MINOR warps, cut out holes, saw marks, split cover seams, writing, etc. WILL be listed in the item descriptions.When the item is still wrapped and unopened from the time it was originally manufactured. We do our best to ensure the items are not re-sealed before we acquire them for sale. We NEVER grade any item "MINT"! Even brand new and untouched items, no matter how perfect they appear at first glance will have flaws. The flaws may be insignificant to most people, but a truly MINT item is absolutely perfect. This grade is THE MOST OVERUSED of all, primarily by sellers without much experience. If you see the word "MINT" used often, beware! With vinyl, it may have never seen a turntable. Covers are bright and crisp. Posters have NEVER been hung! An item that has VERY little (if any) use. The item looks NEARLY new.
Vinyl may have LIGHT paper scuffing (light surface discoloration visible under the light caused by either contact with the paper inner sleeve or sometimes a minor pressing flaw; SCUFFS DON'T AFFECT PLAY). Covers may have a minor flaw such as a small wear spot or mark, but look otherwise NM. Usually these small imperfections will not bother anyone but the most discerning collector.
VERY GOOD PLUS PLUS (VG++). Also known as Excellent Plus (EX+): An item with a more noticeable flaw, such as a scuff line on vinyl (a LIGHT surface mark that can be seen, but NEVER heard) or MINOR ring wear on the cover. Again, flaws that are minor and perfectly acceptable to most collectors.
Also known as Excellent (EX): Items that have been played, but cared for. Vinyl may have multiple scuffs or some LIGHT scratches that cannot be felt by lightly brushing with the fingernail. Vinyl should still play fine, usually with no noise. Covers may have light ring wear or edge wear. They may have minor writing or creasing.
Still, flaws should not stop the collector from enjoying the item. Records may have light scratches. They should PLAY THROUGH with NO skips or repeats, but MAY have some popping, ticking or background noise. Covers may have heavy ring wear, light staining, writing, etc. But will still be intact.
VG records are good filler copies for collectors to fill a gap, or good copies for the less discerning record buyers. VG records are NOT trashed COPIES! These items usually look rough. The only items we list in this condition are rare titles that someone may want to own, regardless of condition.
