THE GOLDMINE STANDARDS FOR
As stated on the page "About Us", there are set guidelines for a universal set of standards for describing the state and condition of all pre-loved records and their covers. Here's a
fuller description of them. Wonderland Records adhere to these standards.
SS Still Sealed in the vacuum pack put on the product by the
manufacturer. Means it's never been opened.
M- Mint Minus means it has been opened (seal broken) but is
still flawless with no damage whatsoever.
VG+ Vinyl - may have scuff marks and signs of some wear-and-
tear but will still play almost perfectly throughout, with only
barely detectable crackles or pops. A slight noise at the
beginning is allowable, but the remainder must be nearly
Cover - May only have the slightest signd of normal wear.
VG Very Good - The majority of records (worth selling) fall
into this grading.
Vinyl - May crackle, pop or make other annoying noises,
but only occasionally, never continuously, and not more
loudly than the music being listened to.
Cover - Normal used cover wear such as ring wear and split
seams. If there is abnormal damage such as tears or
markings, but the seller still feels that it qualifies as a "VG"
the damage must be described in comments attached to
G+ Good Plus means it just doesn't quite fit into the "VG" rating
but is still reasonable.
Vinyl - may have continuious crackles, pops etc ... but not
so loud as to make the music completely unlistenable or
unenjoyable to the casual listener.
Cover - More than normal wear and tear.
POOR Says it all. Very bad recording and tatty cover. Buyer is
made aware the product is on it's last legs and buys it
because they want that particular recording.
