for me, as soon as the seal is cracked, it is no longer mint - even if it has not been played once. this is a NM record, end of I've noticed a lot of sellers stating a particular record is mint - but when you reach out to them for more info, the record has actually been opened. sometimes even played a few times! this is plain wrong! - and for me, is false advertising anyway, maybe I'm being too fussy - so lets have a poll to decide! dive in guys!
