Mint (M): Perfect, unused in sealed original packaging.
Near-Mint (NM): Close to perfect with no visible scratches or scuffs. Appears to be un-played or played less than 5 times.
Excellent (EX): May contain very light surface scratches and/or scuffs. Label and jacket may show slight signs of ring-wear / lightly bent corners. No creases, writing, tears or rips.
Very Good Plus (VG+): May show some signs that it was played and handled by a previous owner who took reasonably good care of it. Imperfections are cosmetic and do not drastically impact the playback. Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs and surface scratches. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are ok. The label and jacket may have some slight ring ring-wear, discoloration, minor tears and imperfections. As with most vinyl, there may be low-level surface noise and light crackles and pops may be present, especially during quiet or soft passages in the track.
Very Good (VG): Many of the imperfections found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG record or sleeve but will still play through nicely without any issues or skips.
Many of the imperfections found in a VG record will be more pronounced in a G+ record or sleeve but will still play through nicely without any issues or skips. Yet there is probably some mild scratches more in number.
Many of the imperfections found in a G+ record will be more pronounced in a G record or sleeve but may occassionally have a skip or two. Pretty pronounced scratching.
Fair (F) Poor (P): We do not sell Poor (P), Fair (F) or (G) Good graded vinyl. We use these grades for sleeves only.

How we work.
We operate out of a small office in the west Los Angeles area near the Pico/Robertson Blvd intersection. We have a small record store with about 6000 vinyl records.
We buy collections and very hard to find vinyl.
What we find on ebay is that people are hesitant to purchase vinyl because they are not sure of the authenticity of the grading.
How we grade:
We have a team of 2 musicians and vinyl enthusiasts that grade records by the record itself.
Kenneth Mahone (keyboarder and gospel musician) and Matthew Harper (who has a small record label himself).
One grader grades the record and then after another grader regrades it.
This way if 1 grader is very “off” then the second grader comes back in to switch the grading.
Regarding the record jacket (the cardboard the record is stored in)
We do not grade this, yet make notes on the listing if any major damage is done to the record jacket.
Our grading system for the vinyl itself.
Mint = It obviously is in shrink, sealed or just opened and looks like never played.
NM = It may be played a few times and the only thing we can find is a few fingerprints possibly someone looking at the vinyl
Very good + (VG+)= Very minor scratches on the vinyl and plays great.
VG = Maybe 4-5 scratches and still plays great
Good Plus (G+)= A number of scratches..maybe 10-15 scratches yet still plays very good.
Good (G) = overwhelming amount of scratches maybe 15-25 noticeable scratches yet still plays
Fair (F) = maybe 100 scratches and we do not sell vinyl like this.
Its very easy for us to locate our vinyl and ship out usually same day.
If you place an order past 2pm EST the shipment will probably go out the next day.
Please note that we send out our records with media mail.
If you would like a more expedited service please let us know beforehand and we can arrange that with you.
Please also note that the post office is closed on sundays almost anywhere.
