The record is delivered in a custom made white 10" sleeve that makes it ideal for displaying as a statement piece or for a presentation gift.All our records are hand cleaned and played before shipping.Shipping prices up to 3 records.The record is shipped in a German custom made fit for purpose strong corrugated cardboard record shipping box.We insure all goods when shipped but not shipping. We will provide a refund for any damaged or lost item but not the cost of shipping. Our Grading System:EXCELLENT: “EX” The record shows some signs of having been played but there is very little lessening in sound quality. Sleeve or cover and packaging might have slight wear or creasing.Note that 78s of the 1920s and 1930s will generally suffer audibly if there are visible signs of wear. This makes it a little difficult to grade and you may wish to say “sounds EX” if you have been able to play and check the sound quality. In most cases, you should grade more conservatively for records which are older than 1950. Use + and – to give a more accurate grading.EX+ This rating usually indicates a really shiny 78rpm with hardly any marks on the playing surface. EX- will show signs of a scuffed playing surface but with no deep scratches and with only minor greying/worn looking patches.VERY GOOD: “VG” A “VG” or very good record has obviously been played many times but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional light scratch.Many 78s are found in this condition. Those that sound pleasant enough, albeit with the usual background hiss and a bit of sound deterioration, can be graded VG+. Those which are still just about listenable but tough on the ears should be graded VG-.As a buyer, avoid anything VG- or below unless it is a real rarity which you must have in any condition.As a seller, if the record is a common one, you are probably wasting your time listing it. Take it to a charity shop!GOOD: A “good” record has been played many times during its lifetime and the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, perhaps with some distortion and mild scratches. A seller using the record collector grading system can grade a record as “Good” and the buyer, thinking “good means good” will not realise that, technically, good= not good. On the other hand, an inexperienced seller may look at a nice shiny, unmarked 78, think “that looks good” and grade it as “good” when it should be described as EX+.FAIR: Just playable. Only great rarities are worth buying or selling in this condition.POOR: Will not play properly due to scratches, bad surface noise etc.BAD: The record is unplayable or might even be broken. Throw it away BUT before you do so give some thought as to whether it might be rare or of such great historical interest that even in this condition it is worth keeping. Is it by blues singer Robert Johnson? Was it recorded by a Jewish owned record company in Nazi Berlin in 1936? Is it a recording of a radio broadcast which might be unique? Does it have a very beautiful or unusual label? There are some very rare things that a specialist collector, discographer or museum might want even if it comes in two pieces!
