Shure recommends 200x

Shure recommends a 200 power microscope with dual side lights. You actually look at the reflections of the parts of the stylus that contact the LP. For each type of stylus (conical, elliptical, etc), their manual has three photos, showing a new stylus, a partially worn stylus, and a stylus that is worn out. Even with all the above, some experience/expertise is required. You can't just buy a scope and expect to accurately assess condition right off the bat.
