|SS : Still Sealed|
Never opened. Flawless, with no damage whatsoever
|NrM : Near Mint / Mint -|
Has been opened, but is still flawless with no damage whatsoever
|VG+ : Very Good Plus|
Vinyl: may have scuff marks and signs of some wear but will still play almost perfectly throughout, with only "barley dectable" crackles or pops. A slight noise at the begining is allowable, but the remainder must be nearly flawless.
Cover: May only have the slightest signs of normal wear.
|VG : Very Good|
The majority of records (worth selling) fall under this grade.
Vinyl: May crackle, pop or make other annoying noises, but only occasionally, never continuosly, and not more loudly than the music being listened to.
Cover: Normal used cover wear such ring wear and split seams. If there is abnormal damage such as tears or markings, but we still feel that it qualifies as a "VG" the damage will be described in comments attached to the item.
|G+ : Good +|
Vinyl: May have continuous crackles, pops, etc... but not so loud as to make the music completely unlistenable or unenjoyable to the casual listener.
Cover: More than normal wear and tear
