      Help with Evaluation: Condition is the most controversial subject in music collecting. One person’s “Mint” is another person’s “Very Good,” and so on.

      Your evaluation will be based on Near Mint and Very Good conditions. Be honest with your own estimation of condition. If you are uncertain how to grade, a good guide to condition is at: Record Collectors Guild

      Where is the Catalog Number? The Catalog Number is the number assigned by the record company for the specific record. Often this number changes with different pressing versions.

      Write down the number (or letter and number combination) as
      it appears on the actual record label. If there is a difference
      between numbers listed on the album cover and the record label, let me know.
