N (78) M (LP). As new and unplayed (there are virtually no 78s that can categorically be claimed to be unplayed). N- (78) M- (LP). Nearly Mint, but has been played. No visible signs of wear or damage. E+ (78) VG+ (LP). Plays like new, with very, very few signs of handling, such as tiny scuffs from being slipped in and out of jackets. E (78) VG (LP). Still very shiny, near new looking, with no visible signs of wear, but a few inaudible scuffs and scratches. E- (78) VG- (LP). Still shiny but without the lustre of a new record, few light scratches. LP: Some wear, scratches and scuffs, but no skipped or repeat grooves. V+ (78) G+ LP. V+ is an average condition 78 in which scuffs and general use has dulled the finish somewhat. Wear is moderate but playing is generally free from distortion. Surface noise not overly pronounced. LP: Below average with scuffs and scratches on fewer than half the tracks. No skips or repeat grooves. V (78) G (LP). Moderate, even wear throughout, but still very playable. Surface noise and scratches audible but not intrusive. V- (78) G- (LP). Quite playable still, but distortion and heavy greying in loud passages. Music remains loud in most passages. Surface noise and scratches well below music level. LP: Lowest Grade. Audible scratches, etc. on more than half the tracks. Listening uncomfortable. G+ (78). Grey throughout but still serviceable. Music begins to sound muffled. Heavy scratches. G (78). Quite seriously worn and scratched, but music level is still higher than surface noise. G- (78). Music still prominent, but wear and scatch damage extensive. F (78).
