Most of the records are probably unplayed, has no signs of any use. I cleaned all records and I found 3 records with some marks. Götterdamerung: Side 9 Ring 18 Has a few light marks, nothing tangible.
Plays without jump, skip, repeat. Siegfried: Side 9 Ring 13 Has a some light marks, nothing tangible. Das Rhiengold: Side 1 & 2 Ring 1 This record has a few heavier marks not so long but a bit deeper scratches. Plays through on both sides without jump and repeat but these scratches have affect on the sound quality, knocking, popping noise. I would still grade as VG or minimum G++ Sound quality.
So I would say the overall quality of this box set is Exc+. Follow me, if you like Antiques, vintage and interesting Collectables!
