Most records are visually inspected and play graded. However, in order to increase selection, from time to time it may be necessary to list records that are visually graded only. Clearance items are visually graded. Grading is to Goldmine standards. If unhappy with the grading of a purchase, records may be returned within 14 days for full refund (less shipping).
NM--virtually flawless; may possess one or two inconsequential flaws that do not affect play.
VG+--shows slight wear (surface scuffs or light surface scratches) though not audibly or visually distracting.
VG--visible signs of handling & playing, usually some surface noise.
G---well worn, but will play through w/o skips, obtrusive loud pops or repeated clicks.
