Record is in EX to NM condition based on grading criteria listed below. Listing includes record as pictured.
Social Distortion - Prison Bound (Very Rare Original 1988 Restless Records Release). No surface markings on either side.
Played both sides and didn't note any surface noise, skips or other issues on any of the tracks. Excellent (close to near mint) looking/sounding record. I grade this as a EX condition record.
Above average condition (VG+) with minor wear. Original as shown, above average condition. Insert included as shown, excellent condition as well.
Record listed has been cleaned using a Nitty Gritty 1.5 cleaning system. I do my best to be fair and honest with my record grading assessments.
I inspect and grade all vinyl by either listening to or visually inspecting under bright lighting. If play graded, it will be noted. Major anomalies will be noted. = Sealed in original shrink wrap. Anomalies Saw cuts, cut-out holes, creases, etc.
= A superb LP record that is nearly perfect. No visible defects, appears to be new, except without the sealed shrink wrap. A good description of a NM record is? It looks like it just came from a retail store and it was opened for the first time. = An LP record that is very close to (NM) with minor defects allowed.
= An LP record that has been played, but well cared for. It may show light wear, such as light scratches or scuffs. = An LP record that exhibits signs of use. Limited scuffs and scratches causing moderate surface noise that will be evident upon playing. Defects should not overpower the music.
= An LP record considered acceptable. The record will play through but with significant surface noise and possible skips.= An LP record marginally acceptable. LP exhibits visible scratches, significant skips/jumps and bad surface noise. = LP cover has no creases, folds, seam splits or other noticeable defects. The same is true for any inserts, posters, lyric sleeves and the like. = LP cover very close to NM, minor defects allowed.
Inner sleeve and will have some moderate wear, and may have lightly turned up corners. = LP cover may have light to moderate ring wear, some tape, stickers, glue, writing, a small seam split, but not all of these defects. Too many of these types of defects will degrade the cover to a Good (G) classification.
Good = LP cover shows signs of significant wear that includes seam splits (especially at the bottom or on the spine) and worn corners. Tape, writing, ring wear or other defects will start to overwhelm the object. Fair = LP cover that barely holds and protects the record. LP cover may include (but not all) the following defects: marred by wear, writing, water damage, seam splits on all three sides, inner sleeve seams splits, crinkled and written upon.
If it is a common LP cover/sleeve, you'll need to find another copy in better shape to replace it. LP will be boxed carefully in a corrugated box made specifically for LPs to protect the cover. LP package will include a clear plastic outer sleeve.
