How It Works:
Eg: EX/EX = First EX refers to the CD, the second EX refers to the Booklet and rear sleeve. We do not grade the plastic jewel cases, as these are easily replaceable. Generally the plastic jewel cases our CDs are sold in are in very good condition or new, you should be able to judge them by the pictures in the listings.
MINT = We only use this grade if we can guarantee the item is unplayed, often Sealed.
EX = Excellent condition, this is our perfect grade. No marks or scratches of any kind, like brand new. In many cases EX CDs will be unplayed.
EX- = Slightly worse than EX, possibly just a couple of light brush marks, used but obviously cared for and still in Excellent condition.
VG+ = Very good condition, a few light marks or general light wear, not far away from being Excellent.
VG =Very Good condition, a few more light brush marks. Fully tested.
VG- = Well used, noticable marks, but tested and fully playable.
BOOKLET / REAR SLEEVE CONDITION
EX = Excellent condition, no noticable folds or creases, no sticker marks, As New.
EX- = Almost in Excellent condition, possibly just a small crease or very very light wear.
VG+ = Light normal wear, still in very good condition and close to Excellent.
VG = Very good condition, maybe some very light wear or creases. Very good but used condition.
VG- = Moderate wear, possible creasing or worn edges. Possibly slight damage, but this would be commented on.
After over twenty years of selling CDs on ebay and our old retail shop you get a feeling for the grade of a Disc or booklet, hopefully the description above helps to describe the grade of this CD, but if you have any further questions on any particular aspect of the condition of this item, we're happy to answer emails at firstname.lastname@example.org.
