Grading Policy

We grade the record 1st and the sleeve (if applicable) 2nd.
So if a grading appears as EX/M it means that the record is EXCELLENT and the sleeve is Mint

MINT M Record and sleeve are unmarked and in brand new condition.
EXCELLENT EX Record shows little sign of being played. Sleeve may be slightly marked. 
VERY GOOD VG The record may be marked with some slight lessening in sound quality. Cover is marked.
GOOD G The record has been played a lot and the sound quality will have noticeably deteriorated and/or mild scratches. Sleeve could be creased, scuffed at edges, marked etc. 
FAIR F Record is still just playable but will be very marked with surface noise and may even jump. Sleeve could be torn, stained and/or defaced. 
POOR P Only the rarest records are offered in this category. The record will not play properly due to scratches and bad surface noise. Sleeve will be badly damaged or partly missing. 
BAD B Super rare record in worse than poor condition
