NM (Near Mint) means like new superb condition VG++ very minimal amount of wear ,very small marks on the tape or very slight wear on the letters. Cover should be in great shape with only the slightest flaws. Most collectors are happy with VG++ items VG+ Tape shows regular use, may be a little dirty or have a good bit of wear , letters may be fading. Front cover may be sun faded , scuffed etc. A VG+ tape still plays fine . A lot of people who consider themselves "collectors" don't like VG+ items , this is more for the person who wants to play the music. VG Condition -- Significant wear signs of heavy use , even neglect , Tape may have lots of scuffs , lots of letter wear , cover may be stained , wrinkled , pages stuck together -- Most collectors do not like items in this condition , this also if for the person who just wants to play it G --- Horrible condition looks like it shouldn't even play---- may be warped , felt may be missing---- letters completely worn off , heavy cover damage . will play through but may have some noise .
I do not grade jewel cases, I am having problems finding new cassette cases so I can no longer replace a cracked or worn case with a new one.
Drill holes (or sometimes called promo punch) and sawcuts (sometimes called cutouts) that go through the inlay will be listed if they have any .
Some of the cassettes we sell are 20-30 years old. Sometimes the felt pressure pads will fall off during shipping or the first time you play an old tape . We check the pads when we sell them but sometimes they do fall off after that , this is a simple matter of re-glueing the pad back on (Household GOOP is the best glue) . . .
This item and all my items are GUARANTEED to PLAY or a replacement tape or Refund will be given . .
WE RECOMMEND ---- Making a Copy of all your old rare tapes for listening to instead of playing the original. Tapes are more fragile than records and cds.

In business for over 20 years. My main focus is 1980's to mid 1990's Heavy Metal Music. From the mainstream to the most obscure and from glam to death metal . We buy and sell. When you buy from me you are not buying from a faceless corporation that doesn't care about the music and throws your items in a piece of crap mailer.
I am a collector and avid metal fan , its a lifestyle for me not just a business. My goal is to one day open a brick and mortar Heavy Metal Museum and Store , your purchases will help me reach for that goal.
