Carefully tested under powerful lamp and on a quality turntable!
33D 034747-50 - MONO - USSR - Original of 1973
Conditions and Grading
I grade conservatively and strictly according to the GOLDMINE Grading guidelines with adding EX condition grade for records that sound Near Mint, but have visual surface imperfections that do not affect sound.
First I inspect records visually under powerful lamp. Second I play first 30 seconds of each record side for visually perfect records. I play defect places also, if detected. Scratches and other serious defects ARE included to records descriptions. I play the records on a quality turntable with great care.
I take pride in not overstating the condition of an item. Check my feedback. On a record, If there is ANY surface noise audible over the music, it will be a VG at best. The only noise acceptable on a VG+ record is audible only between tracks or very quiet passages. A VG+ and EX sound like NM. A NM looks AND sounds like new. NM is my highest grade for vinyl.
Grading is merely an opinion, but I do my best to be accurate.
Goldmine Grading Standard:
(These standards have been expanded to include definitions of CD specific gradings)
Vinyl: Absolutely perfect in every way - certainly never played, possibly even still sealed. (More on still sealed below). Should be used sparingly as a grade, if at all.
CD: Perfect. No scuffs/scratches, unplayed - possibly still sealed.
Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: Perfect. No wear, marks, or any other imperfections - possibly still sealed.
Near Mint [NM or M-]
Vinyl: A nearly perfect record. Many dealers won't give a grade higher than this implying (perhaps correctly) that no record is ever truly perfect. The record shows no obvious sign of wear. A 45 rpm sleeve has no more than the most minor defects, such as almost invisible ring wear or other signs of slight handling.
An LP jacket has no creases, folds, seam splits or any other noticeable similar defect. No cut-out holes, either. And of course, the same is true of any other inserts, such as posters, lyric sleeves, and the like. Basically, Near Mint looks as if you just got it home from a new record store and removed the shrink wrap.
CD: Near perfect. No obvious signs of use, it may have been played - but it has been handled very carefully. Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: Near Perfect. No obvious wear, it may have only the slightest of marks from handling.
Very Good Plus [VG+]
Vinyl: Shows some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Record surfaces may show some slight signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experience. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are OK.
The label may have some ring wear or discoloration, but is should be barely noticeable. The center hole is not misshapen by repeated play. Picture sleeves and LP inner sleeves will have some slight wear, lightly turn-up corners, or a slight seam-split. An LP jacket my 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 of minor 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.
CD: A few minor scuffs/scratches. This has been played, but handled with good care - and certainly not abused. Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: Slight wear, marks, indentations, it may possibly have a cut-out hole (or similar).
Very Good [VG]
Vinyl: Many of the defects found in a VG+ record are more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise is evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during the song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as will 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.
CD: Quite a few light scuffs/scratches, or several more-pronounced scratches. This has obviously been played, but not handled as carefully as a VG+.
Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: More wear, marks, indentations than a VG+. May have slight fading, a small tear/rip, or some writing.
Good [G], Good Plus [G+]
Vinyl: 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.
A jacket or sleeve has 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.
CD: There are a lot of scuffs/scratches. However it will still play through without problems. This has not been handled with much care at all. Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: Well worn, marked, more obvious indentations, fading, writing, than a VG - possibly a more significant tear/rip
Poor [P], Fair [F]:
Vinyl: 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/or writing. The LP jacket barely keeps the LP inside it. Inner sleeves are fully seam split, and written upon.
Except for impossibly rare records otherwise unattainable, records in this condition should be bought or sold for no more than a few cents each.
CD: The CD (if it is included) may or may not play some or all of the tracks. See the seller's comments for details.
Insert/Inlay/Booklet/Sleeve/Digipak: Very worn. It may have obvious writing on it, it may be ripped/torn, or significantly faded, or water damaged.
Standard Jewel Cases: Standard Jewel Cases are not graded as they are replaceable.

I am a record collector since mid-70’s. I buy many records for my private collection. The records, that were doubled or do not satisfy my tastes listed here for sale. All records are used.
I take great care in providing ACCURATE descriptions and quality pictures in every listing.

I try to make prices REASONABLE. The prices are higher for rare items and for earlier presses.
How to save money on shipping? Order 8 LP’s or 3 LP’s. These quantities are optimal for saving money on shipping.
I accept some of the buyer’s offers, but the chances for offer to become order higher for well FOUNDED prices.
If you have any questions, please message me. I check my inbox multiple times a day and am always eager to please.
I have no problem whatsoever with any buyer who changes their mind after placing an order. Providing, I get the message courteously explaining this I will always be happy to cancel. However, orders that are simply left unpaid for without any communication will result in negative buyer feedback being left. I also reserve the right to cancel any order where a buyer’s feedback score and or comments lead me to believe that to continue would pose a risk of financial loss.
Shipping cost includes not only postage cost, but packing costs also. I do my best to keep shipping costs to an absolute minimum simply not charging for packing.
All records are packaged carefully and purpose made vinyl mailers are used to protect vinyl. I use hard 3-layer cardboard from TV sets boxes for my hand-made extra strong mailers. I spare some place outside the record and glue in stiffeners close to record sleeves edges. I get safety package that is much BETTER than standard mailers. Each record is placed inside new poly bag outside the sleeve to protect sleeves from seam splits. Box sets will ship with LPs inside box. All records with sleeves placed inside the PVC bag and put inside hard cardboard box. The box wrapped by extra-strong kraft paper and taped on edges.
ALL shipments I ship to the PayPal address on file. Please be aware of this as this is the ONLY address to which I can ship. It is the buyer's responsibility to make sure their confirmed address with PayPal is correct. Requests for shipping to an address different than your confirmed address cannot be guaranteed.
I send parcels twice a week, every week.
I send tracking number once items are shipped.
Please note that the actual delivery time is the period from your parcel is shipped until it arrives at the country of destination. The local postal handling and customs can prolong the delivery time. Delivery time for Airmail is usually about 12 – 24 days for all countries. Logistics scheme of Russian Post is one of the world’s best. Though, some reasons of delays still exist. Sometimes needs some time for filling shipping container to be sent to the big city nearest to parcel destination address. Customs services of Russia and country of destination needs in time for their procedures. No any parcel was lost in the last 5 years.
Buyers are responsible for any customs charges incurred in their countries.
I got quality pictures from all items that I sell. If you are interested in actual pictures of any record, please send a message with a link to the given record and an E-mail address to send the pictures to. I will be happy to send the pictures that I have. I have actual pictures of all pages of the sleeve and images of labels. I do not make any additional pictures as spine pictures or fragments of record or label.
Every record that I sell Let you ENJOY THE MUSIC!
