Mint / VG +
We are selling this record in "as donated condition" and advise the prospective purchaser to have the record professionally cleaned to bring it to its best condition.
We visually examine all our records under a strong halogen lamp and grade our records according to the Rare Record Price Guide, briefly, as follows:
Mint - Must be sealed or we must have evidence that it has never been played.
Excellent - No scratches, not even 'hairlines' (these are very fine and barely visible dust or sleeve withdrawal marks), or any visible damage to the vinyl whatsoever. (Others would call this Near Mint).
Very Good - The first mild scratches have begun to appear, but only very, very few.
Good - More scratches than Very Good and more severe, but we are confident that the record will play through with no problems.
Fair - It may not play through properly.
Poor - It definitely won't play.
Below Excellent we will use plus or minus with a grade to highlight fine differences.
All vinyl is dispatched using stiffeners and card mailers.
We stock over 500 fine examples of classical records and CDs in our shop at fair prices, which are added to almost daily. 95% our displayed Classical records are at least in Very Good plus condition (see above). Besides a very large selection of sheet music, we always have over 1,200 vinyl records of all genres on display that are added to almost daily.
