RE: Reliable used record grading, seller recommendations

I've sold enough to offer two pieces of advice.

"Excellent" is not considered a legit grading by most serious sellers. The official grading system, by Goldmine, has its problems but has been the standard for decades. I have no idea when "excellent" started but I suspect eBay has something to do with it. I automatically question the veracity of every seller who uses it.

And if you paid with PayPal you should check to see if they're currently offering free return shipping when you open a case against a seller. It's a free service but is apparently only offered occasionally. I've never used it and am not familiar with the details.
