_____________POSTCARD CONDITION CHART:________________
MINT: Vintage postcard appears as it would have fresh off the printing press. No writing, postage marks, creases, bends, etc.
NEAR MINT: This is almost like mint except for a very minor flaw. Example: a little yellowing at the edge.
EXCELLENT: Vintage postcard in excellent condition has no tears or wear. It may be postmarked or written on, but the postcard itself is still in perfect shape.
VERY GOOD: This postcard is often mailed, postmarked and written upon but it has very few signs of wear.
GOOD: This postcard has lived a little and shows signs of its journey. There may be bent corners, a fold, creases, faded colors, etc.
FAIR TO POOR: The rest of the postcards in their grimy, beaten up, bent, crushed, creased and other states.
_______________MAGAZINES CONDITION CHART:_____________
MINT: About as perfect as can be. It may have been read once or twice before being put in plastic.
NEAR MINT: Clean and glossy. Tightly bound. No mailing label. Not quite perfect, but almost.
EXCELLENT-MINT: May have a mailing label if it's still neatly affixed. May have one noticeable minor flaw, such as a slightly curled up corner on one of the covers or a tiny crease on an inside page.
EXCELLENT+: A copy that's been carefully read with two or three minor flaws. Still very nice.
EXCELLENT: Exactly what you'd think.
AVERAGE: A copy of a magazine that's seen it's time on the coffee table but has not fallen prey to any mishaps.
VERY GOOD -EXCELLENT: Just below average. Read, not abused, with one flaw driving it below average. Maybe a crease to one of the covers of an otherwise EX magazine, or an EX magazine that has slightly yellowed. Light stress marks at the covers along the spine area. Not a minor flaw, but just one little bit of damage that keeps it from being average on the eye.
VERY GOOD: A well-read copy of a magazine that may have a somewhat substantial flaw (a heavy crease across the cover perhaps, yellowed pages inside, a tiny tear on the edge) or a couple of minor flaws. Stress marks at the covers near the spine area. Still nice, still collectible.
GOOD-VERY GOOD: A couple of substantial flaws. Still not terrible, but a copy that has enough warning signs that you'd pick up to inspect carefully and look for more than obvious problems. Perhaps a minor tear at the staples on the binding, or the beginnings of a split of the covers at either the very top or very bottom of the spine.
GOOD: May have some minor binding issues but the pages are all still attached and present. May have some soiling on the covers. A stain. Some minor tears but nothing torn off. A slightly heavier fray splitting the top and/or bottom of the paper where the covers meet at the spine.
FAIR: Binding may be starting to come loose. Substantial tears in cover or inside pages, perhaps some small missing pieces as long as it doesn't affect the text. Heavy creasing to covers. Dirty.
POOR: Torn pages. Pages torn out. Covers missing. Heavy soiling and/or staining.
