Record Cover: I provide high quality pictures of the cover for close inspection, and describe any imperfections to the cover to the best of my ability.
Vinyl Record: I use a strict grading system in accordance with GOLDMINE'S RECORD PRICE GUIDES. My records are graded by visual standards under a 100 watt light bulb. When grading a disc, we grade the overall wear of the vinyl, not the label.
I have been collecting and selling records for over 15 years, so you can be confident that the description matches what you are getting. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the your purchase, you will receive a full refund No questions asked.
