I visually inspect each album and use the following grading system.   While I haven't had time to play every album before grading, if you are interested in an album and would like me to test-play it to validate the grade, just ask and I'll be happy to do it.

ALBUM GRADING

SS (STILL SEALED) = Album has never been opened or played

M (MINT) = Looks unused

NM (NEAR MINT) = Just short of mint, virtually no marks

EX (EXCELLENT) = Shows light use, may have a couple light scuffs  that shouldn't be noticeable when played

VG (VERY GOOD) = Shows normal use (not abuse), may have moderate scuffs and scratches that cause some mild surface noise, but not so bad that it keeps you from enjoying the album

G (GOOD) = Not good - the record is pretty much worn out but may still be playable.  Unless very rare, I won't sell an album in this grade.

 

NOTE: There are degrees between the above grades which require the use of + and - signs to indicate that the grade is, in my opinion, slightly higher or slightly lower, but not quite to the next full grade level.

ALBUM COVER GRADING

SS (STILL SEALED) = Cover has never been opened

M (MINT) = Looks like new and perfect

NM (NEAR MINT) = Just short of mint, minor signs of handling

EX (EXCELLENT) = Shows minimal handling, no splits in seams or other aesthetic problems, may have some light wear on edges and corners and may have light ringwear from the album

VG (VERY GOOD) = Shows normal handling (not abuse), may have small to medium split seams or clear tape repairs, may have scuffs and minor creases, may have moderate to heavy ringwear, may have some writing, generally appealing but obviously used

G (GOOD) = Shows heavy use or possibly abuse, large seam splits, lots of writing or graffiti, heavy ring wear, and/or has other problems that make it aesthetically unpleasing

 

NOTE: There are degrees between the above grades which require the use of + and - signs to indicate that the grade is slightly higher or slightly lower, but not quite to the next full grade level.
