Conditions and Grading
Record Grading (Graded as Media / Media / Sleeve)
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.
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 may 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 centre 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+) - Good does not mean Bad! 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. If it's a common item, you'll probably find another copy in better shape eventually. Pass it up. But, if it's something you have been seeking for years, and the price is right, get it... but keep looking to upgrade.
Poor (P), Fair (F) - The record is cracked, badly warped, and won't play through without skipping or repeating. The picture sleeve is water damaged, split on all three seams and heavily marred by wear and writing. The LP cover barely keeps the LP inside it. Inner sleeves are fully seam split, crinkled, and written upon.
CD Grading (Graded as Media / Inserts / Jewel Case or Sleeve)
Mint (M) - Perfect. No scuffs or scratches, unplayed - possibly still sealed. Jewel Case / Insert / Inlay / Booklet / Sleeve / Digipak: Perfect. No wear, marks, or any other imperfections - possibly still sealed.
Near Mint (NM or M-) - Near perfect. No obvious signs of use, it may have been played - but it has been handled very carefully. Jewel Case / Insert / Inlay / Booklet / Sleeve / Digipak: Near Perfect. No obvious wear, it may have only the slightest of marks from handling.
Very Good Plus (VG+) - A few minor scuffs or scratches. This has been played, but handled with good care - and certainly not abused. Jewel Case / Insert / Inlay / Booklet / Sleeve / Digipak: Slight wear, marks, indentations, it may possibly have a cut-out hole (or similar). The jewel case may have external labels on it.
Very Good (VG) - Quite a few light scuffs or scratches, or several more-pronounced scratches. This has obviously been played, but not handled as carefully as a VG+. Jewel Case / Insert / Inlay / Booklet / Sleeve / Digipak: More wear, marks, indentations than a VG+. May have slight fading, a small tear or rip, or some writing or the jewel case may be cracked.
Good (G), Good Plus (G+) - There are a lot of scuffs or scratches. However it will still play through without problems. This has not been handled with much care at all. Jewel Case / Insert / Inlay / Booklet / Sleeve / Digipak: Well worn, marked, more obvious indentations, fading, writing, than a VG - possibly a more significant tear or rip or the jewel case may be broken.
Poor (P), Fair (F) - The CD (if it is included) may or may not play some or all of the tracks. Jewel Case / Insert / Inlay / Booklet / Sleeve / Digipak: Very worn. It may have obvious writing on it, it may be ripped or torn, or significantly faded, or water damaged. The jewel case will have heavy wear and / or be broken.
