(((GRADING SCALE))): *PLEASE NOTE: I'm grading these African records to the same strict standards I'd grade any record, not relative to the condition you normally find African records in.*
NEAR MINT (NM)
We do not assign Mint or Mint(-) grades, and the Near Mint designation is reserved for records that are visually flawless - as in, not one single mark. All records are graded visually unless otherwise noted, but any record with the Near Mint designation has also been play tested.
VERY GOOD PLUS (VG+)
Records in VG+ condition are in superb condition, but may have a faint mark or imperfection (that does not appear to affect play) holding it back from Near Mint status. A record can still attain this condition with a slight (but audibly imperceptible) warp, but this will always be noted in the description. VG+ records should play with no surface noise, clicks, pops, skips or hiss, as well as retain their luster.
VERY GOOD (VG)
Many of the imperfections found on a VG+ Record are more obvious on a VG record. VG records have more obvious flaws than their counterparts in better shape. They lack most of the original gloss found on factory-fresh records. Groove wear is evident on sight, as are light scratches deep enough to feel with a fingernail.
VG records may have some surface noise, especially during the soft passages at a songs intro and ending but should never skip, pop loudly or overpower the music. A record receiving this grade should be a strong play copy, and something we’d personally be willing to play out.
Be forewarned, records in G condition are intended as filler copies only and are not recommended for a pleasurable listening experience, though they should still play through without skipping. We typically avoid selling records in this condition unless they are extremely rare and have extra-musical value.
