always welcome, if you have something good for me. I buy your collections as well..

registered airmail, or EMS(registered express airmail). I won't take responsibility
for non registered parcels getting lost or damaged
the cover first, then the record
Very strict as you see I don't use M- very often unless it's true Mint.
(Never used just M.)
Basically my E is equal as usual M- or NM. Even E(-) or E- are still NM
sometimes. So, my E(+) and E+ are perhaps better than that M- or NM,
and you can imagine my M- is the best in the world.
I use my V+ or V(+) for general wear used records that most seller
graded as EX, so these gradings are really nice, especially records
from South America, Turkey, and other countries like that they are
very cleaner copies from overthere.
My V and V(-) are still OK, they were considered as VG++(or VG+
in case of people don't use double plus) by most. More visible wear,
played often, but nothing serious.
V- has some attentions of wear or noise, but should play well.
G is pretty beat, but no jumps or sticks.
S is still unopened copy(sealed), so the disc is probably new, however
I can grade the cover at least, so if there are some imperfections,
I don't grade at S for the cover.
I graded the disc by double checking both visual and listen.
If the disc looks M- but plays V+, I grade it as V+ without hesitation.
Even I grade V+ if the disc looks V+ but plays M-.
