We are a general antiques business and not LP experts, but we have had this collection graded and regraded by two record dealers. Please note that this grading was done visually. This sleeve is Very Good Plus (VG+), with some spotting on the front and back covers. The corners have some minor wear. The edges are good. The record is Near Mint (NM) with only the lightest of scratches -- it's in fabulous shape with great gloss! The ear and RVG stamp are in the dead wax. We are not certain whether this record was ever played, but we do know that the original owner took excellent care of his collection. We are starting this auction at $9.99 with NO RESERVE. Good luck bidding!
WE SHIP OUR RECORDS IN A CUSTOM BOX, TO ENSURE THAT YOU RECEIVE THEM IN EXACTLY THE CONDITION WE SHIPPED THEM IN. THIS MAY COST YOU A FEW EXTRA DOLLARS IN SHIPPING COST BUT WE HOPE YOU AGREE IT IS WORTH THE COST. IF YOU DON'T, LET US KNOW AND WE'LL BE HAPPY TO GO THE SOMEWHAT RISKIER BUT CHEAPER ROUTE.

Please Take a Moment to Read About Our Shipping Policies:

U.S.Buyers: Please understand thatour handling cost includesinsurance. Thus shipping on highervalue items may seem high. Rest assured that weNEVER mark up shipping costs of any kind- we just pass along whatever we have to pay on your behalf. Allbasic shipping materials are provided at our expense as a courtesy.On rare occasion, if your item is particularly fragile or valuablewe mayneed to pass along the actual cost of special packing materials we purchase just for your item. We typically offer you at least 2 shipping options: Priority Mail for fastest, safest shipment and Parcel Post for slower cheaper service. Make sure to choose the option that suits you best. In some cases there is little to no difference in cost between the two services in which case it only makes sense to use Priority Mail. Certain large or unusually shaped items require special packaging by a professional. In this case we must pass along the packing fees to you, but we still never mark up these services. In the unlikely event that we ever accidentally overcharge youwe will automatically refund your overpayment via PayPal provided theovercharge exceeds$3.00.

International Buyers: are welcome. Please understand that we use eBay's Global Shipping Program for all shipments outside of the U.S. Therefore we are unable to make any changes to shipping arrangements once the auction ends.Since eBay sets the cost for shipping, you'll need to deal with them directly with any inquiries about shipping. As sellers, we don't evenknow what they're charging you. The shipping fee you pay us only covers the cost of shipment toeBay's shipping center in Kentucky, USA. We do not fill out customs documents, select carriers, determine shipping times, etc.

Your items are important to us, so we are very careful in our packing and use the best materials and take our time to make certain that it arrives in the condition in which it left here! We normally ship smaller items to eBay's shipping center using Priority Mail. Packages larger than 12" in any dimension usually ship via Parcel Post to save you money. All of our shipping cost include full ensurance within the U.S. In many cases, only partial ensurance is available to countries outside of the U.S. We will always purchase the maximum available on your behalf. We'll purchase eBay's ShipCover for you only when necessary.It is important that you understand that ShipCover ironically doesn't cover the cost of shipping, so in the unlikely event of loss or damage, you, the buyer will forfeit that cost. Hopefully eBay will fix this problem in the future but for now, your bid constitutes your acceptance of these terms.

Returns: We will accept returns within fourteen days of your receipt of the item only if the item is materially misrepresented. All returns are made at the buyer's expense.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We have had several requests to have the record play-graded. We have since given it to a professional record dealer to play and grade for us. Check back in a few days. We will post the results below this message.
On Mar-11-15 at 08:13:16 PDT, seller added the following information:

UPDATE: We have had this album professionally play-graded by an individual who has collected and sold records for 40 years, and has a 100% eBay rating. According to him,
"I listened to the Hank Mobley album "Peckin Time" twice. Let me start by saying that if I had bought this new and played it I would not have been disappointed. Visually it is VG++ to M-. It plays the same. No tics, no crackling, if there is any, it is overwhelmed by the music. The dead space between the tracts and run off is normal even for a new record and I had to turn it up to hear it. This is a gem!"
So now you can bid with confidence on this superb example of Hank Mobley's Peckin' Time.
