Grading system

CD condition grading

CD's with the VG grade are different from the new ones due to scratches or hairlines. If there is no VG mark, CD hass never been used or if it was, it's impossible to see that.

VINYL condition grading

FIRST GRADE STANDS FOR THE COVER WHILE SECOND SHOWS THE CONDITION OF THE RECORD (FOR EXAMPLE VG+/M- COVER IS IN VG+, WHILE THE RECORD IS IN MINT CONDITION).

M = MINT
COVER LOOKS LIKE NEW. RECORD HAS NEVER BEEN PLAYED, OR IF IT WAS, IT'S NOT POSSIBLE TO TELL THAT BY ANY VISIBLE  MARK OR BY IT'S SOUND.
EX = EXCELLENT
SOME MINOR MARKS OR TRACES COULD SHOW THAT THE  RECORD AND THE COVER WERE USED, BUT THERE IS NO ANY DAMAGE ON THEM LIKE SCRATCHES OR RING WEARS ON THE RECORD OR WRINKLES, CHANGE OF ORIGINAL COLOUR , TEARINGS etc. AT THE COVER OR INNER SLEEVE.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EX AND MINT COULD BE  IN MINOR, BARELY VISIBLE STAINS OR HAIRLINES AT THE RECORD OR TINY, MINOR LINES OR MARKS AT THE COVER. RECORD SHOULD PLAY LIKE MINT.
VG + = VERY GOOD +
COVER SHOWS SOME SIGNS OF TIME AND USING WHICH COULD BE CLASIFIED AS IMPERFECTIONS, BUT THERE ARE NO MAJOR DAMAGES AND WE STILL CAN SAY THAT THE COVE R IS IN DISTANT CONDITION, EVEN THOUGH IT COULD HAVE SOME EDGE WEARS OR RING WEARS, SMALLER WRITINGS ETC.  
AS FOR THE SOUND, MINOR CRUNCHES OR BACKGROUND NOISE IS POSSIBLE AT SOME SPOTS, WHILE THE MOST OF THE RECORD WILL PLAY PERFECT.
VG = VERY GOOD
MORE VISIBLE DAMAGES AT THE COVER, LIKE STRONGER EDGE WEARS OR RING WEARS, TEARINGS,SPLITS, WRITINGS, STICKERS etc., BUT NOTHING IS MISSING. RECORD WILL PLAY WITH SOME BACKGROUND NOISE OR CRUNCHES MOST OF THE TIME DUE TO SCRATCHES AND STAINS, BUT THERE AIN'T NO STRONGER SCRATCHES, PULPABLE UNDER FINGER WHICH COULD CAUSE SKIPS AND JUMPS. SO, NO JUMPS IN VG CONDITION!
G=GOOD
THIS RECORD COULD EVEN JUMP, BUT  IN MOST CASES IT WON'T. WE CAN CHECK IT AT YOUR REQUEST. SOME OF THE SCRATCHES COULD BE STRONGER.
ON THE COVER, SOME SMALLER PIECES COULD EVEN BE RIPPED, TEARINGS, WRITINGS, SPLIT MAJOR WEARS etc ARE EXPECTED.
F = FAIR
WE CAN'T GUARANTEE FOR ANYTHING ABOUT THIS RECORD OR THE COVER EXCEPT THAT IT STILL EXISTS.

 

WE ALSO USE SOME OTHER GRADES WHEN WE WANT TO PLACE THE ITEM'S CONDITION  SOMEWHERE BETWEEN THE DESCRIBED GRADES, LIKE NEAR MINT (BETWEEN MINT AND EXCELLENT) OR EXC-(BETWEEN EXCELLENT AND VG+).
