Mint (M) — Absolutely perfect in every way. Certainly never been played, possibly even still sealed.
Near Mint (NM or M-) — A nearly perfect record. A NM or M- record has more than likely never been played, and the vinyl will play perfectly, with no imperfections during playback.
Very Good Plus (VG+) — Generally worth 50% of the Near Mint value. 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.
Very Good (VG) — Generally worth 25% of Near Mint value. 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.
Good (G) — Good Plus (G+) — Generally worth 10-15% of the Near Mint value. A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be played through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise, scratches, and visible groove wear.
Poor (P) — Fair (F) — Generally worth 0-5% of the Near Mint price, but we don’t sell that crap.
Mint (M) — Perfect condtion in every way, it has most likely been locked away
Near Mint (NM or M-) - Almost perfect, the previous owner might have opened it and played the record once
Very Good Plus (VG+) — Might have a sticker on it, but in great condition overall
Very Good (VG) — A split seam or some ring wear might be the case
Good Plus (G+) — You wouldn´t consider showing this piece off to your friendes
Good (G) — John Goodman vibe
Fair (F) — Raised by a catolic nun
