The grade is also listed in the item specifics. Mint: Only sealed records are considered mint. NM : Near Mint : I rarely grade NM. No scratches and clean inlays. This would leave one wondering if it's been played.
EX: Looks great, sounds new. Can have up to 3 scratches per side. VG+: May have some light scratches. Usually less than 8 per side.Very little change to sound quality. Expected to have sound quality close to near mint. Likely will sound VG+ as the VG has scratches but the scratches are light and spaced out. This is great for playing. VG: Has alot of scratches.
Usually more than 8 on each side. May have slight affect on sound quality.
The primary example is crackling that can be present on quieter sections. G+: Scratches cover the entire record.
Usually the scratches are light and the record can sound fine but skips are a possibility. G: Record is not playable. Deep scratches, cracks, warps, chips, and more. A record in this condition would need to be ultra rare.

VG:May have 2 imperfections such as ring wear and a signature. G+: has 3 imperfections such as ring wear, signature, and a tear on the binding. G: Has 4 or more imperfections.
