You can also hear both sides of this record playing on my Victrolaman U tube channel. Good Luck !! My grading system is simple M I was transported back in time to a record store and purchased new stock and returned to 2016. M- It looks like new old stock but I can't prove it. E+ It looks and plays really fantastic, visual grading under light may detect minimal hard to see scuffs and maybe some tiny surface scratches E It has been obviously been handled and played a number of times, may have a few minor scuffs and surface scratches as you would find on most records of this vintage, but still plays really exceptionally well. E- , quite a few signs of scuffing and other surface blemishes and scratches along with noticeable but not distracting surface noise but still enjoyable . G+ A serious collector would turn his nose up at it, but a beginner would jump in, sound quality far from great, starting to fade much more gray and little gloss left, and almost ready for the Old record retirement home. G Been through a war and looks like it was played 100's of times with worn steel needle, A wall hanger or target practice item, or for those who just wanted to say they have one.
