All gradings are visual unless a 'Play grade' section is included in the description of the item. Although visual gradings are normally accurate, very occasionally items may have audio flaws that are not immediately apparent from visual inspection alone.

If the record was originally issued with special features such as a specific type of sleeve, poster(s), insert(s), photo(s) etc and these features are neither mentioned in the description nor shown in the photos then they are not present or included with the item.

We don't ever knowingly sell records that jump or stick unless this is clearly stated in the description. All flaws such as significant damage, warping, foxing, jumps, sticks, sticker removal tears, library stamps, writing on the sleeve or labels will be detailed in the description and/or shown in the photographs of the item. Please bear in mind that you are buying a second-hand item that could be up to 60 years old, so don't assume that it will be in perfect, as new condition unless this is very clearly stated.
