◘ I will consider offers on items listed and in my collection (express interest, and I will grade it for you - then you can make an offer).
◘ Offers are more readily accepted if you are interested in multiple items.
◘ I generally list everything $8.99 and up with "Make Offer," and everything below without - it has nothing to do with whether I think the item is priced fairly.
Most 7"s are play-tested, most full LPs/EPs are visual only.
M: "Mint" is only if sealed, jacket must show no significant issue.
NM: Near Mint ranges from perfect or flawless in appearance and play, to slight imperfections - a tiny corner ding or rounding, one or two spindle hole lines, scuff from a paper sleeve, a couple scuff-level hairlines that Do Not Affect Play (DNAP). Goldmine says No OBVIOUS wear - which DOES NOT MEAN no imperfections, it means you have to look for them.
VG+: Ranges from soooo very close to NM but has 1-2 additional minor imperfections - a label nick, a manufacturing lump, an edge chip or a single hairline that DNAP but is still visually painful; disc is really nice, plays almost perfectly clean (only some low-level and intermittent or occasional surface noise). Jacket has low level of imperfection - not significantly worn, and only a few edge creases, minor corner rounding - with issues considered in the aggregate.
VG: VG means it's a nice player, likely has scuffing & scratches, ranges from high end being just too many marks for VG+ (regardless of severity or impact on play), down to fair amount of marks, but not noisey - it MAY have noise, but does not overpower music. Toughest issue with jackets is seam split - if it is a lot, then it bumps down (G+/G); minor seam split is considered with other damage in the aggregate.
G/G+: G/G+ means a fair amount of scuffs/scratches, playable without frustration other than likely consistent/persistent noise of a higher level that VG. G+ is used when the issues are principally limited to one category or the issues are ameliorated by something else - e.g., a jacket has seam splits but otherwise looks good in a bag, or a disc that looks bad but plays much better.
Poor/Fair/Everything else - I would sell this only if I think someone out there wants it, but description of issues is provided.
I do not grade cassette boxes or jewel cases. The physical cassette is tape media inside of a shell; the cassette is then inside of a box with a J-card. I grade a cassette by play-testing the media and visually inspecting the shell and J-card. Only mention of the box or case will be if it is non-generic for the release (e.g., digipak).
Contact me for any reason or special case.
US shipping is flat $5.00, USPS Media Mail.
REST OF WORLD:
I only use United States Postal Service (USPS) with spotty tracking to some countries. Valuable orders may require a higher level to ensure delivery. USPS international rates are scaled as 0-8 oz., 9-32 oz., 33-48 oz., and 49-64 oz., maximum of 4 pounds. Customs, duties, and VATs are YOUR responsibility.
Guidelines: things vary, and sometimes I can ship 5 LPs for 3 pounds, 7 LPs for 4 pounds, but these rates should cover 95%. Over 3 pounds, it is cheaper to ship as two packages of 2 lbs. each, rather than as a single package. Discogs is (again) supporting shipping at below-retail rates (current June 1, 2019), and estimates based on those rates are:
7"s: 1-2, $10.50; 3-14, $15.50
12"s, standard 120 gram, non-gatefold: 1-2, $15.50; 3-4, $23.00; 5-6, $33.50 (two packages at 2 lbs. each, $31.00)
Cassettes: 1, $10.50; 2-8, $15.50
CDs: 1, $10.50; 2-8, $15.50
7"s: 1-2, $11.00; 3-14, $19.00
12"s, standard 120 gram, non-gatefold: 1-2, $19.00; 3-4, $28.50; 5-6, $42.50 (two packages at 2 lbs. each, $38.00)
Cassettes: 1, $11.00; 2-8, $19.00
CDs: 1, $11.00; 2-8, $19.00
Rest of World:
7"s: 1-2, $13.50; 3-14, $22.00
12"s, standard 120 gram, non-gatefold: 1-2, $22.00; 3-4, $34.50; 5-6, $54.00 (two packages at 2 lbs. each, $44.00)
Cassettes: 1, $13.50; 2-8, $22.00
CDs: 1, $13.50; 2-8, $22.00
I leave feedback. Part of the transaction is you being satisfied - so I leave feedback after you do OR an amount of time passes by which I assume you would have listened to the item(s) and determined that the transaction is completed.
Problems happen. Let me know what the issue is. I will not pay return shipping - I am not going to pay for both ways so someone can take a test drive.
