Condition Grading

Following close inspection every item is ranked according to condition in categories listed below. For each category there is a specific price level which reflects the condition. 

  • New - No signs of wear or use.
  • About New - Very slight marks from stacking, handling or light use.
  • Light Wear - Items may have slightly noticeable surface or base wear. No damage or defects.
  • Moderate Wear - Items may have very noticeable surface or base wear.
  • Crazing- Minute surface cracking in the glaze of any item resulting from differing rates of contraction between the glaze and the body during manufacturing. Only older or more desirable items are sold when crazing is present.
  • Light Crazing – Only a few lines that may be barely visible.
  • Moderate crazing - Partial or overall crazing that may still be difficult to see.
  • Heavy crazing - Overall crazing that is clearly visible.
  • Worn Trim - When worn trim occurs it will always be mentioned in the description. Items with excessively worn trim are discarded.
  • Items with chips, cracks, damage or excessive wear are discarded and not sold.
