Condition (sleeve/vinyl): VG/EX
Note: I am selling a collection of 45s and LPs of which the majority fall in the punk, new wave, garage and art/experimental genres. The 45s are starting first, followed by the LPs. I do combine shipping and will be happy to hold records until the alphabet is completed. However, immediate payment is required as items are won, and postage will be adjusted accordingly on future wins.
Grading Scale: M, M-, EX, VG+, VG, VG-, G
M (mint) is reserved for unplayed, flawless stock copies. M- (mint minus) is the highest grade for a record in beautiful shape. EX (excellent) means there's a minor flaw on the sleeve (small crease, price sticker) or disc (fingerprint, harmless scratch). VG+ (very good plus) means a sleeve has minor shop wear — is creased and/or shows a ring impression, and the disc shows cosmetic signs of handling. VG (very good) means not for the anal-retentive. The sleeve shows multiple flaws (sticker tear, seam split, ring wear, rumpled top) and the disc has surface noise (no skips or thunderous pops) and multiple small scratches. VG- (very good minus) means the sleeve is "well loved" with numerous flaws while the vinyl is exhibits many flaws and is noisy. G (good) means the sleeve contains major flaws such as large tears, heavy staining, etc., while the vinyl is beat but playable with no skips.
