no bullshit. no rhyme or reason to the selection.all records are from my private collection, and all the vinyl is in SUPER SWEET CONDITION. Mix of original and/or early pressings. A bunch of original UK pressings. some promos.
The condition of these records is uniformly fantastic. All records easily grade EX to NM/M.Perhaps a handfull have enoughlight sleeve-wear to grade VG+, but not many.
The covers are all ingoodshape, with minor wear. A few cut corners. Maybe some seam slit on some inner sleeves. maybe some sticker residue, or an old price sticker. No trash. No torn up crap.
any questions on a particular LP, just ask.

The most important thing you need to know about me is that I treat people the way I expect to be treated. I simply do everything in my power to ensure a seamless and enjoyable transaction. I grade strictly; I ship promptly and professionally; I offer 'no questions asked' full refunds. I will even pay for your return shipping in the rare event that some aspect of our transaction does not meet your expectations.
(My basic rule of thumb is that if a record isn't pretty "minty" to begin with, I don't bother listing it. It's just too problematic dealing with "mid-grade" records online. I stick to the good stuff; and have had no trouble with grading expectations.)
STRICT GOLDMINE GRADING
( . . i do use "EX" as a super-sweet spot grade solidly above "VG+" . . . but oh-so-slightly below the pristine, just-opened appearance of a true "NM" record.)
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.
NEAR MINT (NM OR M-)
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, its nearly perfect. Many dealers wont use a grade higher than this, implying (perhaps correctly) that no record or sleeve is ever truly perfect.
VERY GOOD PLUS (VG+) or EXCELLENT (E)
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 songs intro and ending. But the noise will not overpower the music otherwise.
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 wont be obvious upon looking. Someone might have written or it or stamped a price tag on it, too.
Good Plus (G+)
or Very Good Minus (VG)
These records go for 10 to 15 percent of the Near Mint value, if you are lucky.
Good does not mean bad! The record still plays through without skipping, so it can serve as filler until something better comes along. But it has significant surface noise and groove wear, and the label is worn, with significant ring wear, heavy writing, or obvious damage caused by someone trying to remove tape or stickers and failing miserably. A Good to VG cover has ring wear to the point of distraction, has seam splits obvious on sight and may have even heavier writing, such as, for example, huge radio station letters written across the front to deter theft.
If the item is common, its probably better to pass it up. But if youve been seeking it for a long time, get it cheap and look to upgrade.
