Some noise can be heard, especially during quieter parts of the song, the intro, and the final fade of the song, but not enough to affect the song itself. There are noticeable dents and minor scratches that can be noticed by touching them with your fingertips and that affect the sound. There may be writing or stickers/tape (or the remains of stickers/tape).Similar defects can be found on the photo sleeves and LP covers. However, not all of the above mentioned defects are included in one item, but only two or three of them.
Records of this grade will be priced lowest in the Goldmine Price Guide if more than one price is set. Please use this as a basis for appropriate pricing. Generally worth 10-15% of like-new (NM/M-) Good+ (G+) or Good (G) means that the record is uninterrupted when played and is basically in "not bad" condition. However, there may be noticeable noise, scratches, or dents on the record (on styrene records, the dents will turn white), and the cover or sleeve seam may be torn (especially at the bottom of the back portion).Tape (or its marks), writing, record marks, and other imperfections are very visible. If this is a common item, you will find it in much better condition. Generally worth 0-5% of like-new (NM/M-).
Records of this grade may be cracked or severely bent, causing the song to break up or the same part to repeat over and over. The sleeves are in very poor condition with marks where something has been spilled or written on them, and the LP covers make it difficult to even place the record inside. Many inner sleeves are also completely torn or have very noticeable wrinkles and writing.It is best to avoid purchasing these items unless they are extremely difficult to find. The price of this grade item is only worth about a few cents.
