Below you will find the record grading system that we use at Papa Disquo.

Please note, that should you have any questions, we strongly recommend you call to clarify or email us for more information.



M (Mint): Factory sealed items ONLY.

NM/M- (Near Mint/Mint Minus):  A near perfect, probably UN-PLAYED record or very well taken care of. This is our highest grading next to the sealed items.

EX- Besides any noticeable wear on the centre label, the vinyl itself is in excellent condition.

VG+ (Very Good Plus): Almost like new, with minor inaudible marks that does not affect play at all. A well cared for record that most collectors will be very pleased with.

VG (Very Good): A very reasonably USED copy that will show signs of wear and possibly some hairline marks/surface noise. This will still be a very decent copy.

VG- (Very Good Minus): This record will show SIGNIFICANT WEAR, HEAVIER un-sleeved and hairline marks. Surface noise can be much more noticeable. Note: VG- may be the lowest grade as a DJ copy - still a good work horse but not much life left in it.

G/G+ (Good/Good Plus): Vinyl quality goes down significantly from here. 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. 

Fair/Poor: A copy that is very scratched and noisy, in tact but just a collection filler.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are paying by PayPal please make sure that the address you want the order shipped to is the one listed on your PayPal account as we will only ship to that address.

WHATEVER IS IN THE ITEM DESCRIPTION IS WHAT YOU GET: If there is no mention of posters, bonus 7's, obis, inserts etc. then the copy listed for sale does not have the said item in question.

THE SMALL PRINT: Orders $100 or over will be insured.
