Cover: Normal used cover wear such as ring wear and split seams.

Vinyl: May have continuous crackles, pops, etc / label ware... But not so loud as to make the music completely unlistenable or unenjoyable to the Casual listener.

Writing on sleeve or label will reduce the grading as appropriate.

Sleeve graded first then media, e.g. vg / vg+ very good sleeve and very good plus media (vinyl). Where there is no grade would mean cover only or record only. 45'S with graded sleeve are all Picture sleeves

PLN = White or Brown etc (Plain) paper sleeve
