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.
Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially
if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.
This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

A nice little entry in the "Woman to Woman" answer song series – which was started a few years earlier by Barbara Mason and Shirley Brown. Lonnie pretends he's the man, listening in on the "Woman To Woman" conversation, and thinking about how bad an earner his woman is! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Can music get any stranger than this – a steel band cover of the theme to "Jesus Christ Superstar"? The tune's actually pretty great – using the groove to roll home nicely in the middle, and vamping a lot towards the end with some nice changes on the steel drums! "Singer ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Rare 60s work from Brenner's Folk – a Spanish group who later changed their name to Pic Nic, and had a lot more success in that format! The style here is a bit folksy, but also recorded with a garagey style too – a nicely dark current that makes the male singer sound especially nice, ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
