This guide is split into three sections: Albums, Singles and Extended Play (E.P.).
Numbers represent a scale of rarity from 1 to 10, where 1 is extremely common and 10 is extremely rare.
The majority of album releases fall within the 1 to 4 range; and such albums are in plentiful supply online or via used-record stores.
Records with a rating between 5 and 8 appear less frequently.
Records with a rating of 9 or 10 rarely appear for sale or at auction.
Please take note that this guide exclusively addresses the grading of a record according to its rarity - not its 'dollar' value.
