Grading All records are visually graded, there are too many to play grade. Check the information in the item listing which may expand or qualify the grade shown, but consider the following:-

Vinyl 'NM' is our highest grade, and means that the LP is close to pristine. (New, sealed issues are described as 'NM')
Vinyl 'EX' (also known as VG+) is clean. Minimal defects. Maybe a few light marks, or fingernail marks, or visible scuffs, which do not really impair audio quality. If there are several of these defects present then the record will be relegated to a 'VG'
Vinyl 'VG' - surface marks, light scratches which will not seriously impair listening, but may be clearly present during playing.
Vinyl 'G' - visible and / or audible shortcomings, so don't expect too much.
Cover 'NM'- new or nearly as new
Cover 'EX'- Defects may be one or two of the following:- Some visible rubbing, loss of gloss, slight discoloration of white sections, small spine wear, small label tears. If there several of these defects then the cover will be relegated to a 'VG'
Cover 'VG'- Larger seam splits, surface tears after removal of price tags, heavier ring wear.
Cover 'G'-Some cardboard to put a record in, and that's about it !
