A Vintage Murray Pedal Car. Do not know much about the car and what I do, will share below. Owner was Auto Body Specialist. 1st attempt at restoring a pedal car. Sand blasted the car, primer the car, painted, and clear coated.
New decals, under body is clean, no visual rust, rubber is good, has a fresh scratch from me as we are getting ready to move-my bad. Otherwise a very clean car. If I had to grade the car, I would grade it VG/VG+ because of the fresh scratch.Please look at my Feedback scores. I try to grade fairly, as I was a major distributor of Laserdisc and Records and understand the difference between a G/VG record versus a VG/VG+ record.
Thank you for looking at this posting and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. These are absolutely perfect in every way. Often rumored but rarely seen, Mint should never be used as a grade unless more than one person agrees the disc or sleeve truly is in this condition.Majority of NEW records should fit into this category. NEAR MINT (NM OR M-). A good description of a NM records is it looks like it just came from a retail store and it was opened for the first time. In other words, it's nearly perfect.
Many graders won't use a grade higher than this, implying (perhaps correctly) no records or sleeve is ever truly perfect. NM discs are shiny, with no visible defects. Writing, stickers or other markings cannot appear on the label.NM covers are free of creases, ring wear and seam splits of any kind. VERY GOOD PLUS (VG+) or EXCELLENT (E). A good description of a VG+ records is except for a couple minor things, this would be Near Mint. Most collectors, especially those who want to play their records, will be happy with a VG+ records, especially if it towards the high end of the grade (sometimes called VG++ or E+).
VG+ records may show some slight signs of wear, including light scuffs or very light scratches which do not affect the viewing experience. VG+ covers should have only minor wear. A VG+ cover might have some very minor seam wear or a split (less than one inch long) at the bottom, the most vulnerable location.
Also, a VG+ cover may have some defacing, such as a cut-out marking. Covers with cut-out markings can never be considered Near Mint. Many of the imperfections found on a VG+ records are more obvious on a VG records.
This being said, VG records are among the biggest bargains in laserdisc collecting. VG records have more obvious flaws than their counterparts in better shape. They will show more signs of wear, including more visual scuffs or light scratches throughout the disc. Minor writing, tape or a sticker can detract from the label.
Ring wear in the middle or along the edges of the cover where the edge of a records would reside, is obvious, though not overwhelming. Some more creases might be visible. Seam splitting will be more obvious; it may appear on all three sides, though it won? T be obvious upon looking. Someone might have written or it or stamped a price tag on it, too.
GOOD (G), GOOD PLUS (G+) OR VERY GOOD MINUS VG? Good does not mean bad!The records still plays through without skipping, so it can serve as filler until something better comes along. But it has significant visual degrading, and the label is worn, with significant ring wear, heavy writing, or obvious damage caused by someone trying to remove tape or stickers and failing miserably.
A Good to VG cover has ring wear to the point of distraction, has seam splits obvious on sight and may have even heavier writing, such as, for example, huge video store letters written across the front to deter theft or hole punches. If the item is common, it? S probably better to pass it up. But if you've been seeking it for a long time, get it cheap and look to upgrade.
