With most vintage items it is to be expected that there will be some signs of wear.  I will always try to point out any major flaws or very obvious signs of wear.  

Part of the charm of a vintage piece is that it has a history and is unique. 

I use the following guide when assessing the condition of any items I sell.  Please remember I am only human and may miss the odd small flaw.

 

Mint/perfect - this is self explanatory and is very rare 

 

Near mint/perfect - as new with no flaws to report 

 

Excellent - has been worn but with no flaws to report  

 

Very Good - any noted minor flaws may be repairable or already repaired, item is wearable  

 

Good - any noted minor flaws may be repairable or    already repaired, item is wearable with care or after repair 

 

Fair - numerous noted flaws, some significant, possibly repairable/wearable

 

As found - damaged beyond repair but with value as a costume or for study

 

Items are sold on an 'as seen basis'.  If you would like more information about the condition of an item before purchasing then please contact me and I will be happy to help.
