SEALED ITEMS MUST BE RETURNED IN THEIR ORIGINAL SEALED CONDITION.
Mint (M): Perfect condition,
which basically means that it is as good as new, literally. The vinyl has to
look new and sound as though it was never played, and the cover has to look
untouched. Some argue that the only mint records are brand new, unopened ones
still in their original packing.
Near Mint (NM): Vinyl is near perfect. At most,
a light scuff appears on the record, but it should play without any noise or
skips. The record sleeve should also be nearly perfect, with only minor signs
of wear. There should be no "ring wear" on the cover. (Ring wear is
when the outline of the record inside shows through the sleeve.)
Excellent (EX or VG++): Vinyl should still play with no skips of any kind. There can be some
very minor surface scuffs, but they should not affect the sound quality. The
record sleeve can have some minor ring wear, but it should be mostly in good
shape. Also, there can be some minor creases in the corners, but no splits in
Very Good Plus (VG+): This is the grading category where the quality of
the sound is affected — there will be some surface noise — and the vinyl will
show wear, including surface scuffs and some light scratches. However, the
record is still very listenable as there are no deep scratches that cause
skips. On the cover, the corners may be slightly bent, but not broken. There
may be wear to the seams but not tears or holes.
Very Good (VG): Vinyl doesn't
necessarily look good, but still plays well enough. Surface noise will probably
be present, including pops and clicks. At higher volume levels, the music
should overpower any pops and clicks present. There may be seam splitting, but
not complete separation of the sleeve panels from each other. There will be
noticeable ring wear on the cover, but the cover should for the most part still
be in good condition.
Good (G): Vinyl is well-played and looks it. However,
the record should still play without skipping. It will have substantial surface
noise, pops, and clicks. Loss of various parts of the dynamic range will occur
due to worn grooves. This grade depends a lot on the owner and the type of
records he or she collects. A rock record may still sound OK at a high volume,
but quieter styles of music will be practically unlistenable. The record cover
may have many problems, including seam splits, tears, and writing on it.
A FEW NOTES ON LEAVING EBAY FEEDBACK:
is currently using a 5-STAR DSR (Detailed Seller Rating) to evaluate
and rank sellers. I really need to earn a full 5-STAR DSR RATING. In
eBay’s book, anything less than 5-STARS in all four categories is ‘bad
feedback’. If I have not given you reason enough for 5-STAR GRADES in
ALL FOUR DSR CATEGORIES then please CONTACT ME BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR
SCORES. I assure you that I will resolve any issues you may have with
time once I surrender a parcel to Canada Post is completely out of my
control. Please remember that you are evaluating the seller’s shipping
practices and NOT Canada Post when completing my DSR scores.
