Here are 2 classic 45s. Both come in new white sleeves. The Conquistador 45 has some light pencil markings on the label and light blemishes or markings on the vinyl. It plays very well, with maybe a touch of surface noise. The Whiter Shade 45 has a hole punch through the label, some pencil writing, and a “certified gold standard” sticker on the label. There is some heavier scuff and scratches. It does play well and straight through but with some heavier moments of surface noise.
Please see pics. I have done my best to include any examples of blemishes and markings on the vinyl.
We do our best to describe and photograph each item in detail. We try not to rely on any specific grading system, such as Goldmine, for using those simplistic grades may not capture the true essence of the item, and are also subject to interpretation by the seller or buyer. Possibly increasing expectations.
