- Mint: As new, appears perfect to the unaided eye.
- Almost perfect: one or two faint marks in a relatively unimportant location (like the base plate).
- Mint minus: a few surface rubs or “bright marks” or a single small scratch or edge nick. Still beautiful.
- Exc++: Similar to mint minus except that the marks may be in a more visible location (like the top plate). Black paint finish may have minimal edge brassing on sharp edges.
- Exc+: Shows signs of reasonably careful use such as rub marks, light strap marks. Clean user condition.
- Exc: Shows definite signs of use including a possible tap, ding, or shallow impress. Shows no sign of hard impact.
- With rare exceptions, items rated less than excellent will not be offered.
