Our Rating System


VINYL RECORDS:


MEDIA: This is the condition of the vinyl, not the condition of the center label. The rating is determined by visual inspection, not play.
M = Mint. New. Sealed.
NM = Near Mint. Like new. Little or no scuffs.
VG = Very Good. A few minor scuffs, but nothing serious.
G = Good. Surface scuffs are present and wear is noticeable.
ARTWORK: This is the condition of the sleeve the vinyl is packaged in.
M = Mint. New. Sealed. No ringwear or markings.
NM = Near Mint. Like new. Little ringwear and/or some minor markings.
VG = Very Good. Some ringwear and/or markings.
G = Good. Significant ringwear, markings or other wear and tear are noticeable.
OTHER:
PS = Picture Sleeve.
GS = Generic Sleeve (no pictures or artwork).
CO = Cutout (clipped corner, saw mark, drill hole, clipped corner, etc).

COMPACT DISCS:


MEDIA: This is the condition of the disc. The rating is determined by visual inspection, not play.
M = Mint. New. Sealed.
NM = Near Mint. Like new. Little or no scuffs.
VG = Very Good. A few minor surface scuffs, but nothing serious.
G = Good. Surface scuffs are present and wear is noticeable.
ARTWORK: This is the condition of the artwork that accompanies the CD, not the condition of the jewel/slimline/digipak case. We do not grade jewel cases.
CA = Complete artwork. Insert, endsert, etc. is present.
NI = No insert, but endsert is present.
Note: Many promo/demo copies often are distributed without an insert.
NE = No endsert, but insert is present.
Note: Some CDs in plastic prologic sleeves may be packaged this way. DJ's often repackage CDs into these plastic sleeves since they are lighter and take less room and, in the process, they discard the endsert.
NA = No artwork.
OTHER:
CO = Cutout (saw mark, drill hole, clipped corner, etc)

CASSETTE TAPES:


MEDIA: This is the condition of the tape cartridge, not the magnetic tape itself. The rating is determined by visual inspection, not play. Most of our cassettes are 20-40 years old, so we cannot guarantee play quality.
M = Mint. New. Sealed.
NM = Near Mint. Like new. Little or no scuffs.
VG = Very Good. A few minor surface marks, but nothing serious.
G = Good. Surface marks are present and wear is noticeable.
ARTWORK: This is the condition of the artwork that accompanies the cassette, not the condition of the cassette case. We do not grade cassette cases.
CA = Complete artwork. Artwork is present.
NA = No artwork.
OTHER:
CO = Cutout (saw mark, drill hole, clipped corner, etc)

MISCELLANEOUS NOTES:
1. We do not grade CD jewel cases or Cassette cases! Most of our cases are in excellent shape, but some may be scuffed, cracked or cutout.
2. Since we buy many items from individuals, DJs and collectors, some items may have stickers, labels, DJ cue marks, writing, etc. on them. Vinyl jackets are evaluated primarily on the condition of the front and back, not the edges.
3. Any rating system is subjective and imperfect. We rate as accurately as possible and conservatively, but ratings may be off by one grade on used items. This is due to the fact that used items are rated at a point in time and experience fair wear and tear thereafter as they are handled over time. Hence, use our ratings as a guideline only.
