Thanks for everyone My advice would be,pick up a record player,turntable,buy a new stylus,needle for it and" Enjoy" it while you are grading it. I have two turntables that I picked up at garage sales that work well.

Records are evaluated by both the cover and the record in unison. Same applies for 45s and 78s. Record collectors always will base it on cover grade, record grade, sealed/unsealed, demand and number of pressings. Hope this helps!
