The average used item. An item in this grade shows some wear, but has not accumulated enough total defects to reduce eye appeal to the point that it is no longer desirable.
This grade can have a moderate accumulation of defects but still maintains its basic structural integrity. For all items this grade may include repairs done properly but still not original to the item.
An item in this grade is usually soiled, ragged, and possibly unattractive. Items in this grade are considered restorable or good for parts. This is usually the lowest possible grade for an item we offer unless its collect ability and or rarity qualify it for consideration.
Most items in this grade have been sufficiently degraded to the point that copies may have extremely severe stains, and/or moderate to heavy abrasions. We usually shy away from poor quality items unless they are so uncommon that they hold a value in the eyes of a collector. We do not list anything that could be considered below this grade regardless of rarity.
