This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so.
These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play,
but might detract from the looks.
May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be
intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under
the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record.
(Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
Possible minor surface noise when played.

cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
A tight single off the 5 Boroughs LP, with the Beasties getting back to business after whatever you want to call the Hello Nasty LP. The cut rocks nicely in a new school fashion with a nod to the old: stabs and breaks strung together in a nice funky fashion. 12-inch, Vinyl record
Early bootleg recording of Flash & the Furious Five, with an old school beat mix on the flip, one that's about as rough as you can get and still be dope, reported by some to actually by Afrika Bambataa and Afrika Islam. It may seem a little primitive by today's standards, but it's an essential ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Probably the biggest hit that Gary Byrd ever had, and a conscious effort by this DJ/public speaker to compete with the hip hop 12" single. "The Crown" is a 10 minute track that features Byrd rhyming about wisdom, knowlege, and heritage – with instrumental backing by Stevie ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
