I have now moved my record selling from paulsrecords.com to this site, so if you searched for a record on Google and find yourself here that is why.
You can browse the records in the shop and buy them using the shopping cart. Payment is by PayPal only at the moment. Olease read the notes on postage and grading below.
I’m still adding stock (17th Jan 2013) and I should have all my 45s for sale up here in the near future, then I’ll add some LPs.
Please drop me a line if you have any problems.
Postage is calculated according to the weight of your order, where in the world you are and how much your order costs.
Within the UK all orders under £43 in value will be sent by Recorded Delivery, everything over this amount will be sent Special Delivery. This is to ensure that the order is insured to its value should Royal Mail lose it and you have to claim.
International orders will be sent by International Signed For, orders over £50 will have the extra insurance charge added.
Initially the UK postage will show up in the shopping cart but when you fill in your shipping details the correct postage will be calculated. You can use the “Calculate Shipping” option to see how much postage will be.
These are the gradings that I use. I try to be conservative to rule out any uncertainty or argument. But if you don’t agree with my grading after buying something please return it and I’ll refund you the cost.
MINT (M) – The record is as new. The cover and any inserts should be in perfect condition. I’ve never seen a record or cover in this condition so I don’t use this grading unless a record (LP) is sealed then I assume it is Mint.
MINT MINUS(M-) – The record is near mint, there is no damage or visible surface marking. Under Bright Light you may see fine lines on the record, caused by rubbing on the paper sleeve. LP or Picture covers and inserts are undamaged.
EXCELLENT (Ex) – The record shows signs of having been played, with light surface marks or fingerprints but there is no appreciable lessening in sound quality. The cover and packaging might have slight wear and/or creasing.
VERY GOOD(VG) – The record has obviously been played many times, but displays no major deterioration in sound quality, despite noticeable surface marks and the occasional scratch. Normal wear and tear on the cover or extra items, without any major defects. These will play through and any background noise will not overwhelm the music.
GOOD(G) – The record has been played so much that the sound quality has noticeably deteriorated, with some distortion and scratches. The cover and contents suffer from major folding, scuffing of edges, spine splits, discoloration, etc. It will play through but be noisy and not pretty.
I won’t sell records below these grades.
In the comments of each record I will make mention of any defects and I may use the above categories with pluses or minuses to denote that a record or cover falls in between the gradings shown above.
slt = slight
wol = writing on label
wlp = white label promotional copy
bb = drill hole
sol = sticker on label
smol = sticker mark on label
nap = not affecting play
