+ Or - Better or Worse examples of above grades.
Writing on sleeve or label will reduce the grading as appropriate.
Sleeve graded first then media, e.g. vg / vg+ very good sleeve and very good plus media (vinyl). Where there is no grade would mean cover only or record only. 45'S with graded sleeve are all Picture sleeves
