|Grading of Items by Avatune.com|
Avatune Use the widely accepted "Record Collector" grading system to describe the condition of their stock.
The following are typical of the abbreviations Used when grading stock - if in doubt or you need more information just ask.
M Mint Must be in perfect condition with no audible or visible defects whatsoever. The record and cover/sleeve should be exactly as brand new.
NM Near Mint Almost mint but has one or two minor visible marks on the cover/sleeve or surface with sound quality remaining perfect.
EX Excellent Not quite perfect. There may a slight chance of minor deterioration in sound quality. The cover/sleeve may show slight wear.
VG Very Good The surface and cover/sleeve shows visible signs of wear due to the fact that it has been played on a regular basis. There will be some audible surface noise but it will not effect the listening experience.
G Good The sound quality has deteriorated due to having been played often. The cover/sleeve and surface will show considerable signs of wear and tear with some possible damage.
F Fair Has been neglected, but is still playable. There will be major audible defects such as loud clicks or jumping. The cover/sleeve may be badly damaged.
P Poor Technically playable, but with serious deterioration in condition and sound quality. The cover/sleeve will be badly damaged.
VP Very Poor In terrible condition and absolutely unplayable. Would only be of use as a last resort to complete a collection.
Please note - we do NOT grade Jewel cases or trays as they are easy to replace
If the above policy leaves any doubts, please refer to GEMM's generally accepted Grading Standard
