About item condition:
is a general definition of the terms we use when describing item condition. We endeavor to qualify the condition of all items as well as possible. We never intentionally identify an item as being in better condition than it is. If you believe we have accidentally misrepresented the condition of an item, please let us know. Any item classified as less than "near mint" should have qualifications as to its particular condition listed.
Mint: We only use this definition when the item was acquired directly from the Lodge, Council, function, retailer, or other original source and is known to have been kept in plastic or other secure storage since. All items marked "mint" are in as-new condition.
Near-mint: Most of the items we have for sale fall into this category. For the most part, these items appear unsewn and unused. Most people would qualify the vast majority of these items as "mint". However, since we cannot trace the history of these items back to the original purchase, we classify them as "near mint". Some of these patches may have tape on the back from being mounted in a binder or having identification notes on the back. Some patches may have been sewn on and carefully removed, and it is not immediately apparent. Neckerchiefs in this category may be wrinkled. Books may have been read but not significantly worn or damaged. All items we classify as "near mint" are in very good condition, but some may not be in quite perfect condition.
Good: Items classified as "good" are in overall good condition. No major defects can be seen, but t may be signs that a patch has been sewn on, it may be limp (washed), or may have some other noticeable but not major defect. Other items may have similar minor defects.
Fair: Most items classified as fair will be old, hard to get, or high-valued items. Despite obvious wear, the rarity of these items still makes them collectible. Any item classified as "fair" will have obvious signs of wear.
Poor: It is very rare that we will even list an item in "poor" condition. However, sometimes very hard to find issues still have value regardless of condition. Patches in this category may have major thread breaks, be in highly used condition, have holes in the material, et cetera. Other items will show similar signs of wear or abuse.
A Note to Our Customers:

In the short time since April of 2004, we have built what started out as a way to get by until we both found jobs into a great small business with great customers. We appreciate all of our customers' business and loyalty immensely. Overall, we have been greatly impressed with the quality of people in the eBay community. You should be aware however that we are still a small, two-person, home-based business. One of us works full time at another job, while the other goes to college full time. We also do a lot of tr...
