We use the “Goldmine Standard” to rate used records’ condition:

  • SS Still Sealed Never opened. Vinyl is flawless, with no damage whatsoever. May be a punch hole or side-cut in the cover or may have a few spots of mold under the shrink wrap. Description with item will include all flaws.
  • M-(EX) Mint Minus-Excellent Has been opened, but is still flawless with no damage whatsoever.
  • VG+ Very Good Plus Vinyl: May have scuff marks and signs of some wear but will still play almost perfectly throughout, with only “barely detectable” crackles or pops. Cover: May only have the slightest signs of normal wear.
  • VG Very Good The majority of records fall under this grade. Vinyl: May crackle, pop or make other annoying noises, but only occasionally, never continuously, and not more loudly than the music being listened to. Cover: Normal cover wear such as ring wear, split seams, tears or markings. Damage will be described in comments attached to the item.
  • G Good Vinyl: May have continuous crackles, pops, etc… but not so loud as to make the music completely unlistenable or unenjoyable to the listener. Cover: More than usual wear and tear.
