CHRISTMAS WITH ELVIS EPNM-/NMrArE 58 true US 1st PR RCA EPA-4340. Release/version is not on Discogs - I had to add it! Goldmine Standard Grading (scroll down for full Grading Scale). Very slight signs of use, a couple of whisps, labels fab bar a few finger print marks, vinyl in superb shape. From a covid, pet and smoke free home.
Grading Vinyl Records: I use the industry standard grading guide below for records. How Will My Record Be Packed? IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME THAT YOUR RECORD ARRIVES UNDAMAGED!
If required I include a FREE stiff 12 cardboard spacer to sandwich the record inside a FREE high-quality professional RECORD BOX MAILER made in the USA from 100% recycled paper. I go to such lengths to ensure the highest quality packaging it is impossible for a record to be damaged without very obvious visible severe damage to the mailer. Each side of the whole LP that is good enough quality to zoom in and clearly see any damage without it being blurred. A close-up photograph of each side of the label on the record to verify it is the same record as dispatched.
Clear pictures of any damage to the mailer. Whilst we are all operating under the honor system unfortunately this has become necessary especially regarding vinyl records. Please be sure this is what you want from the grading description here and attached photos!Absolutely perfect in every way. Certainly never been played, possibly even still sealed. Near Mint (NM or M-). A NM- record has more than likely never been played, and the vinyl will play perfectly, with no imperfections during playback.
The record should show no obvious signs of wear. An LP cover should have no creases, folds, seam splits, cut-out holes, or other noticeable similar defects. The same should be true of any other inserts, like posters, lyric sleeves.. A Very Good Plus record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it. Defects should be more of a cosmetic nature, not affecting the actual playback as a whole.
Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences. Slight warps that do not affect the sound are "OK". The label may have some ring wear or discoloration, but it should be barely noticeable. Spindle marks may be present. Picture sleeves and inner sleeves will have some slight wear, slightly turned-up corners, or a slight seam split.
An LP cover may have slight signs of wear, and may be marred by a cut-out hole, indentation, or cut corner. In general, if not for a couple of minor things wrong with it, this would be Near Mint. Sleeve has slight wear, marks, indentations, and/or may possibly have a cut-out hole (or similar). Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident upon playing, especially in soft passages and during a song's intro and fade, but will not overpower the music otherwise.Groove wear will start to be noticeable, as with light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound. Labels may be marred by writing, or have tape or stickers (or their residue) attached. The same will be true of picture sleeves or LP covers. However, it will not have all of these problems at the same time. Goldmine price guides with more than one price will list VG as the lowest price. Good (G), Good Plus (G+). Generally worth 10-15% of the Near Mint value. A record in Good or Good Plus condition can be played through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise, scratches, and visible groove wear. A cover or sleeve will have seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the spine. Tape, writing, ring wear, or other defects will be present. While the record will be playable without skipping, noticeable surface noise and "ticks" will almost certainly accompany the playback. Generally worth 0-5% of the Near Mint price. The record is cracked, badly warped, and won't play through without skipping or repeating. The picture sleeve is water damaged, split on all three seams and heavily marred by wear and writing. The LP cover barely keeps the LP inside it. Inner sleeves are fully split, crinkled, and written upon. The item "CHRISTMAS WITH ELVIS 7 EPNM-/NMrArE 58 true US 1st PR RCA EPA-4340" is in sale since Friday, August 27, 2021.
