GRADING: I grade disc first/cover second. I use M, EX, and VG with (+) or (-) indicating slightly better or worse for each grade. For most of the singles and EP's in this section, the main items of interest will be the picture sleeve. About 90% of the European sleeves graded EX in this list were purchased through major European catalogs as M-. So if you are satisfied with the gradings of M- in many European catalogs, you will have no problems with my EX grade. You will not believe how clean my M- sleeves are, only the most minute of imperfections. Because I use a wider range of grading than most European dealers, their VG+ may be slightly better than mine in some cases. Sealed records are no guarantee the disc is perfect and without defects such as warps or scratches from packaging. If you wish me to carefully open your sealed purchases before shipping, leaving the shrink intact, I will do so for both our protection. Then I will guarantee the record. If only one grade appears, this refers to an item which is disc only unless sleeve only is indicated.
