You need to play it to decide. Sometimes older pressings can take the abuse. And then the usual courtesy would be to call out the mark on that side.

I once found an orig. Bluenote at a goodwill.Cover was beautiful!!Then I pulled out the record! Shocked
It looked like someone had used a pair of scissors and dug an x through the whole thing on one side.I guess they really hated that side!Heartbreaker Crying or Very sad

Thats what happens when records are goodwill....its hard to find an older one in decent shape. The covers usually trashed as is the vinyl.

I've never found it necessary to ascribe an "overall" condition to an LP; i.e. if one side is NM and the other side is VG, then as long as the flaws are pointed out, you've graded it accurately and no one can fault you on that. Same with a 45....I have sold many where the condition of one side is less than the condition of the other. I try to accurately grade each side (both visually and from a play perspective) and that, I think, is the key if trying to sell something.
