Records are graded using the Goldmine system, shown below for reference:
Sealed: Jacket sealed in shrink wrap or other original packaging. The vinyl in this case is sold as-is or not graded.
NM (Near Mint): No visible defects. No writing, stickers, spindle marks, or any other imperfections on label. Appears unplayed and unhandled.
VG++: May have some light wear including sleeve scuffs or other superficial marks that will not affect play.
VG+: Will have some light wear that may include sleeve scuffs, very light scratches, or other superficial marks.
VG: Similar imperfections to a VG+ record, but they're either more pronounced, or there is a higher number of imperfections.
VG-: Many light scratches or scuffs. Any record with an isolated defect such as a single scratch that can be felt with a fingernail will have a VG- grade or lower. The record will not skip but some noise is expected.
G: Many imperfections, including but not limited to scratches that can be felt with a fingernail. A lot of background noise, clicks, and pops should be expected with this grade.
