OUR GRADINGS ARE BASED ON THE U.K. RECORD COLLECTOR SYSTEM, NOT ON GOLDMINE. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE ORDERING.
Vinyl Singles: Please note that if a vinyl 45 comes in a picture sleeve, it will have the words 'Picture Sleeve' listed in the description. If there is a grading for the sleeve but the words 'Picture Sleeve' do not appear then the grading is for an ordinary company sleeve. If there is no sleeve grading at all then the single comes in a generic sleeve.
New Records are usually sealed and have never been played.
M=Mint As new, or almost new. Mint records look and sound as if they have either never been played or have, perhaps, been spun once or twice in the shop before being returned to the racks. CDs will look and sound as new. We often grade CDs as Mint- but rarely grade records this way even though they may look new.
Ex=Excellent Some signs of age and use; may have some marks, especially when viewed under strong light, and has obviously been played but has been handled well and is still in great condition. Plays with no significant surface noise. Sleeves may be slightly worn or creased, but only very slightly. CDs may have small surface scuff marks but will play perfectly.
VG=Very Good Noticeable marks but still plays well although there may be some surface noise, particularly near the beginning. Sleeves may have a little ringwear, slight marks or small tears. CDs may have surface scuff marks which are quite noticeable but will still play perfectly.
G=Good Signs of significant playing hours, with surface marks and grooves but despite some noise the sound should be intact without skips and jumps. Sleeves may have small tears and ringwear and other signs of age but are fundamentally sound. CDs will have many marks from being left out of their covers but there should be no deep grooves affecting play.
F=Fair Noticeably marked, scuffed and worn. Will play but will have clearly audible surface noises. Record's surface will show significant signs of use and the vinyl will be dull and lacking in lustre. Despite the noise you should be able to play the record right through and hear the music clearly. Sleeves may be torn, frayed or split along the seam and may have ringwear or be otherwise damaged. CDs will have lots of marks and scratches and may play on some machines but not on others ... buyer beware.
P=Poor Records in Poor condition will often be playable but the surface noise may be louder than the music. They are usually of value to completists or people who just want to hear a rare sound or own a rare record. Sleeves will be badly torn and frayed. CDs will have been used as frisbees but if they do play - they'll sound just like new (the beauty of the digital world). Of course, if they don't play, they won't play ...... buyer beware
