11. A note on Grading
In describing the condition of the items to be sold, as much care as possible is given to note obvious flaws, major and minor. We have made every effort to be as thorough and accurate as possible but cannot hope to list every flaw in every item. When important flaws are noted, some minor flaws may be passed over in light of the major flaws cited. Catalog condition descriptions are subjective. Instead of a number system we use descriptive terms: mint, near mint, excellent, very good, good, fair, poor, and hyphenates of those terms, i.e. good to very good. Rather than try to define those terms exactly we rely on what we think is the generally accepted definitions of those terms. These terms are flexible and often an early and rare item that seldom turns up might be given more latitude in describing general condition. Thus we say that when an item is listed as excellent we mean that it has no major flaws and if it does have minor flaws they are not such that they would keep the item from being considered in excellent condition given the age and rarity of the item. WHEN IMPERFECTIONS ARE NOTED, THE BUYER SHOULD BID ACCORDINGLY. ABSENTEE BIDDERS CAN CALL FOR ADDI- TIONAL DETAILS AS TO CONDITION. In any event, the ultimate judge is the buyer as stated in Section 1 of the Terms of Sale.
