Grading of Records - Parkgate Records Ltd

Grading of Records

Mint M: The record is as new

Item is Mint if it is New and Sealed

Excellent EX: The record is nearly perfect, there is no damage or visible surface marking. The Cover and inserts are undamaged.

Excellent Minus EX - : Any damage is confined to light surface marking.
Such damage although visible under bright light will not have any effect on the sound reproduction.
The cover and any inserts may show only light creasing, browning or foxing due to dampness but they are all present and intact 

Very Good VG - : The record has obviously been played a lot, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality despite surface marks or some light scratches.
The Cover may be lightly creased or show minor ringwear
