• An original 1971 French 45rpm + picture sleeve (with typo on cover) : Cotillion – 650.216 L
• 2016 Ltd Edition yellow vinyl to celebrate the VU Extravaganza Exhibition in Paris : Sealed, assumed MINT.
I don’t not use generic record grading, all flaws : writing, spindle marks, scuffs, scratches will be noted. All records have some form of static or background crackle ! But here is the gist …
Mint : Does exist unless sealed, even then might not be perfect.
NM : No sign of being played whatsoever ! No spindles marks on label !
EX+/EX/EX- : Only the very slightest signs of being played. Nothing beyond a light sleeve removal mark/ Hairline – unless mentioned in listing. Any flaws noted.
VG++/ VG+/VG :Still good enough for collector but all flaws listed.
Anything less would have to be super rare to bother……
