Record Grading

 
MINT    Top Quality unplayed condition both labels and vinyl immaculate. 
 
MINT-   Almost Mint a superb record.
 
EX        Excellent condition all round looks and plays great.
 
VG+      A nice looking record will play free from any major defects.
 
VG        Will play ok with the odd pop and crackle here and there.
  
GOOD   Vinyl has been played quite a lot but still reproduces a good enough sound.
             Lots of scratches some may be deep - ok till a better copy comes along. 
 
a + or - will accentuate the above grades in either direction.
