Grading

Grading is a subjective process and perception may vary between people. Our grading is done based on what we have seen over the past 40 years in the industry IN OUR AREA. We use the following grading catagories MINT - Virtually untouched; no visible flaws. NEAR MINT - May be mint, but we can't guarantee it. May have some flaw. SEALED - Still sealed in original container; container may have some parting at seams. NEW/UNISSUED IN BOX/DISPLAY CARD - Appears unissued and un-used and still in original container. Container may not be mint. Condition of container may be stated seperately. NEW/UNISSUED - Appears unissued and un-used. AS NEW IN BOX - Seems new, but can not guarantee. Container may not be mint. Condition of container may be stated seperately. AS NEW/APPEARS UNISSUED/APPEARS UNUSED - Seems to be new, but can not guarantee. May have some flaw. EXCELLENT/EX - Subjective, and may depend on the rarity of the item and/or the condition normally found in. Eg. a 200 year-old battlefield excavation item will show damage, but may well be Ex. in comparison to the usual find, and will have been treated and stabilized. For newer items, normally denotes crisp and bright, with little or no damage. VERY GOOD/VG - Subjective (see example above). Shows minimum wear and no damage. GOOD/G - Subjective (see above). Normal use wear, possible light damage. FAIR/F - Subjective (see above). Shows heavy wear. Any damage will be noted seperately. POOR/P - Subjective (see above). Damaged and heavily worn. Usually not offered except for parts or because of rarity. / - Can't make up my mind which way to classify it but don't want to overstate it. + - Upper end of the grading catagory, but probably not quite good enoug to be /. ORIGINAL BOX - Comes with original box. No implication on the condition/quality of the box or content, which are given seperately. Normally increases the value of the item by more than simply the value of the item + the value of the box. WITH/W HISTORY - Known history of the item can be documented from date given. Will add as much as 100% to the value of an item. History will usually only be available as a synopsis of 1-2 pages or as a display scroll. Some histories can be quite extensive and of historical value in their own and may have to be purchased seperately if wanted in detail, though on high-end items these are usually included. W HISTORY & PHOTOS - Known history of the item can be documented from the date given, and includes photos of the item in use/on location and/or supporting photos. These are usually available with an item only as a synopsis of 1-2 pages with list and/or photocopies of photos. Some histories can be quite extensive and of historical value in their own and may have to be purchased seperately if wanted in detail, though on high-end items these may be included. Conditions of Sale: If items are not what or as claimed, they may be returned for refund of the purchase price satisfied. Items must be returned within 5 days and in the same condition sent. Items may be returned within 10 days for credit towards another purchase. Date of return is deemed to be the day it is delivered to our post office Photos: Because our items are all one-of-kind items, not quantity stock, and are low priced it is not possible to provide individual photographs of the some 30,000 items. Individual photos simply cost too much in staff time and and processing to make it viable. However, if you really really need a photograph, we will provide one at a cost of $10.00 per item. We now offer an answering service for your questions about your collectables, values, appraisals or Garage Sale values, or about inquiries concerning some of our listings. To find out more, click on
