Quality measure for used records: Goldmine Grading Standard
We are always anxious to ensure that the used vinyl we buy and offer is well preserved. When assessing the condition, we rely on the internationally applicable »Goldmine Grading Standard«. Based on this system, we sort used records and their covers in descending quality classes from Mint/Sealed (M/S) to Fair (F). The respective evaluation is indicated for each used vinyl item in our online shop. The majority of our used records is in a condition no worse than Very Good Plus (VG+). To maintain this lowest benchmark is our aspiration when purchasing records, whereby we provide dealers and collectors with the opportunity to render their used records at outstanding terms – regardless whether it is a single record or an entire collection.
