Every dealer claims they're tough and conservative graders so it probably won't surprise you when I say the same thing.  The difference is that I actually make an effort to be honest about it.  I try to grade material based on Goldmine standards and since I buy this stuff to actually listen to it, virtually everything for sale has been play graded.  If you're skeptical (and you should be), check my Discogs and MusicStack feedback ratings (available under the name BadCat Records).  You'll see I generate favorable feedback from customers   




I also recognize that grading is highly subjective.  I'm bound to screw up from time to time.  When I do  just get in touch with me and let me know what the problem is.  We'll work out an agreeable solution.
