The VJM Record Grading System For 78 RPM: N As new and unplayed (there are virtually no 78s that can categorically be claimed to be unplayed). N- Nearly Mint, but has been played. No visible signs of wear or damage. E+ Plays like new, with very, very few signs of handling, such as tiny scuffs from being slipped in and out of jackets. E Still very shiny, near new looking, with no visible signs of wear, but a few inaudible scuffs and scratches. E- Still shiny but without the luster of a new record, few light scratches. 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. V Moderate, even wear throughout, but still very playable. Surface noise and scratches audible but not intrusive. V- Quite playable still, but distortion and heavy graying in loud passages. Music remains loud in most passages. Surface noise and scratches well below music level. G+ Gray throughout but still serviceable. Music begins to sound muffled. Heavy scratches. G Quite seriously worn and scratched, but music level is still higher than surface noise. G- Music still prominent, but wear and scratch damage extensive. F Most of music remains audible over surface noise, but listening now uncomfortable.
