I like music. I like records. I’m not an expert on either. I’m a liberator of lost vinyl. You can be assured that I will make an honest assessment of the records that I’m selling. I will use my best judgement and the guidelines of music sites and other sellers that I respect in terms of grading and communicating the condition of my records (see below).
If you’re unhappy in any way, just let me know.
My goal is to connect these records with people who will appreciate them. Whether you buy them for your personal collection, your listening pleasure or resale... it doesn’t matter to me. My only goal is to play fair, find cool records and make them available to those who want or need them. Thanks for checking out my listings.
All of my records are visually graded according to the Goldmine guidelines (paraphrased below). When I have the chance, I will play them. If they need some love, I will clean them. In general, I have learned to ‘under-grade’ rather than ‘over-grade.’ That said, if you still disagree with my advertised condition, let me know. I offer a 14-day MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE if you are unsatisfied with the condition of your album in any way.
Mint (M) - Absolutely perfect in every way. Certainly never been played, possibly even still sealed.
Near Mint (NM or M-) A nearly perfect record. The record should show no obvious signs of wear. A 45 RPM or EP sleeve should have no more than the most minor defects, such as almost invisible ring wear or other signs of slight handling.
An LP cover should have no creases, folds, seam splits or other noticeable similar defects. No cut-out holes, either. And of course, the same should be true of any other inserts, such as posters, lyric sleeves and the like. Basically, an LP in near mint condition looks as if you just got it home from a new record store and removed the shrink wrap.
Excellent (EX) - (This is not a Goldmine grade, but is a selection on ) This is an album that comes close to NM but not quite. It looks great and plays great, but just doesn’t merit the NM label.
Very Good Plus (VG+) - A Very Good Plus record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Record surfaces show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are "OK". The label may have some ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. The center hole will not have been misshapen by repeated play.
Picture sleeves and LP inner sleeves will have some slight wear, lightly turned up corners, or a slight seam split. An LP cover may have slight signs of wear also and may be marred by a cut-out hole, indentation or corner indicating it was taken out of print and sold at a discount. In general, if not for a couple things wrong with it, this would be Near Mint. All but the most mint-crazy collectors will find a Very Good Plus record highly acceptable.
Very Good (VG) - Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as with light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound.
Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue) attached. The same will be true of picture sleeves or LP covers. However, it will not have all of these problems at the same time, only two or three of them.
Good (G), Good Plus (G+) - A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be put onto a turntable and will play through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise and scratches and visible groove wear (on a styrene record, the groove will be starting to turn white). A cover or sleeve will have seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the spine. Tape, writing, ring wear or other defects will start to overwhelm the object.
