Record Gradings : To my best & 100% honest ability, the 45’s grading’s (per Goldmine website) falls in to the range listed. I look into a light for scratches/scuffs and set the 45 down to check for any warpage. The last time I listened to my 45’s was in 1998 and they played well. I have a Bang-Olufsen Turntable, changed expensive diamond needles every few years, and balanced the clean needle that allowed for the absolute minimal force on a record groove. I sell my LP’s as is since I cannot control differences in other’s turntables/needle care or performance.
Record History & Storage Care : I no longer listen to my vinyl records and decided to sell my entire personal collection. Very hard decision for me. I started collecting 45’s in 1967 and I am the sole owner of every 45 Single I own. 95% of all my records were purchased NEW from Korvettes, Hudsons, Dearborn Music, or Kresge’s (all in the Detroit area). For over 50 years, all my 45 Singles have been stored in a 45 storage carrying case box. Whatever outside cover wear exists, it is from sliding the records in/out from the storage box. They have never been stored in an attic.
Record Care-Handling-Selling Criteria : My life’s record care was immaculate, and I never touched any of my record grooves. I’ve always handled my vinyl with my right thumb on the record edge and my fingers by the center hole. Whenever I did listen to my albums, I used the Discwasher Record Care System and always put the vinyl back into its sleeve after listening to it.
Packaging & Shipping : I make my own sturdy cardboard shipping packages & place the 45 Single(s) with acid-free sheet protectors, with additional cardboard panels. I seal & protect the package with several layers of industrial tape, and highlight red “FRAGILE DO NOT BEND” on the package.
