Conditions and Grading
Mint (M) Looks absolutely perfect in every way. Almost certainly has never been played, possibly even still sealed.
Near Mint (NM) 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.
The LP cover should have no creases, folds, seam splits or other noticeable similar defects. No cut-out holes, either unless it was a promotional or discontinued item.
Very Good Plus 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 may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences.
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 seam splits. 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.
Very Good Plus (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 be noticeable, as with light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) but will not affect the overall sound or play.
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.
I sell nothing below VG (may have some noise - UNLESS IT'S VERY COLLECTABLE AT ANY GRADE) Few and Minor superficial hairline scratches that do not interfere with play, sound (may have some noise) or recording quality are graded as VG or better. I will not sell anything that I myself would not buy. I do not sell LP's which do not play to my satisfaction. Those LP's, I prefer to give away as a "Freebie" to my customers.
I PERSONALLY "TEST PLAY" all "HIGH END" Records that I sell prior to listing the LP. I'm lucky enough to have the time to play them. So believe me, when I say the LP plays great, IT PLAYS GREAT!!!
If in doubt, please ask before ordering!

My name is Izzy and I ONLY SELL ORIGINAL LP'S. As you can see, much of my collection is expensive. I do not sell cheap because these are my LP's from my many years of collection and love for Latin music. And since I know how difficult finding original Latin LP's is in foreign countries, I want to take my Latin LP's overseas, I need to make the prices "Less desirable" here in the USA so that overseas buyers could have the opportunity to purchase them even at these high prices. At least they are available. If I sold them cheaper, I'm sure they would sell and remain here in the USA. And not reach our Latin music lovers across the seas.
I enjoy selling and dealing with the serious collectors.
Again, If I wanted to sell my collection sooner, I would have had lesser prices. But since I really don't need the money, and in no great pain to get rid of my LP's, so I will wait for those who are willing to pay premium prices for original Hi End, rare records.
I ship orders immediately after payment is received. Please note that I will only mail out anything to your PayPal Verified Address ONLY. No If's, And's or But's. I will not relinquish my Sellers Protection for anyone.
