Grading is sleeve/record. NPS means no sleeve ever issued. If you are familiar with Mike B's scheme then think along those lines, sort of. If you're familiar with general European grading - everything down to vg++ here would equate to m- or ex there, vg+ would equate to ex or ex- there, g here = vg+ or vg there. Detailed grading information is available at the bottom of this page - scroll on down...
Records I haven't got around to grading yet are marked --/--. Email me with any questions. I think all these records are still here, if by chance I've sold one or two of them without remembering to cross them off the list please don't be angry.

Grading info ------------ m is reserved for unplayed records or unnaturally perfect sleeves
m- refers to sleeves or vinyl in unblemished condition
vg++ refers to sleeves that have no major defects (ie rips or tears or visible ring wear), it may include slight ruffling of the sleeve, slight sticker stain, slight raising of the sleeves due to ring impression, for vinyl the record is clean, maybe a light scuff or two
vg+: one or two more noticeable defects - what they are will be noted, or if not it means the sleeve is somewhat overall degraded, without it being one particular defect, a structurally perfect sleeve with some writing on it will usually be graded vg+, vinyl will have some scuffing
vg: sleeve has some defacing defect, ugly sticker mark, more than one tear, strong ring wear or some combination of other defects, vinyl has general scuffing or one or two noticeably larger marks
g: we're still talking "good" condition remember - sleeve has some ugly defect or is worn all over, vinyl will generally be noisy
b: anything else is in "bad" condition, only for the ultrararities
