Standard gradings
  • M: mint record, should be unplayed
  • M-: looks M but might have been played once or twice.
  • E+: Plays like new, with very, very few signs of handling, such as tiny scuffs from being slipped in and o ut of jackets.
  • E: Still very shiny, near new looking, with no visible signs of wear, but a few inaudible scuffs and scratches.
  • VG+: An average condition 78 in which scuffs and general use has dulled the finish somewhat. Wear is moderate but playing is generally free from distortion. Surface noise not overly pronounced.
  • VG: Moderate, even wear throughout, but still very playable. Surface noise and scratches audible but not intrusive.
  • VG-: Quite playable still, but distortion and heavy greying in loud passages. Music remains loud in most passages. Surface noise and scratches well below music level.
  • G+: Grey throughout but still serviceable. Music begins to sound muffled. Heavy scratches.
  • G: Quite seriously worn and scratched, but music level is still higher than surface noise.
  • F: Most of music remains audible over surface noise, but listening now uncomfortable.
  • TOL: Tear On Label.
