CONDITION: From Mint to Good. We have not gone through thousands of these records - I do not know what is in here. The photos are of two of my truckloads from the warehouse - I made seven loads. The records are stored inside a smoke-free climate controlled home - most on spindles as shown in the photos; some vertical in record boxes on shelves. Records are stored in Central Florida.
Please don't hesitate to ask any questions. Near Mint (NM or M-). The record should show no obvious signs of wear. Excellent (EX) This grade refers to an attractive, fresh-in-appearance item that, upon closer inspection, has been disqualified from the NM category due to (usually) one flaw that could not be overlooked. A Very Good Plus record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it.
Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are "OK". The label may have some ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. The center hole will not have been misshapen by repeated play.
Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise. Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as with light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound. Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue) attached. Good (G), Good Plus (G+) Good does not mean Bad.
A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be put onto a turntable and will play through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise and scratches and visible groove wear (on a styrene record, the groove will be starting to turn white). The record is cracked, badly warped, and won't play through without skipping or repeating.The item "45 RPM Records 50,000+ Vintage Many Unpicked from 60-year Collection" is in sale since Saturday, January 18, 2020.
