CONDITION & GRADING OF POSTCARDS In order to more accurately describe the condition of the postcards I am selling, I am using the following standard grading system adapted by most dealers and by the leading postcard hobby publications:
M - MINT ~ Perfect card just as it comes from the printing press. No marks or creases, and no writing or postmark. A clean and fresh card.
NM - NEAR MINT ~ Very light aging or very slight discoloration from being in an album for many years. Not as sharp or crisp.
EX - EXCELLENT ~ Like mint in appearance with no bends or creases, or rounded or blunt corners. May be postally used or unused and may have writing and postmark only on the address side. A clean, fresh card on the picture side.
VG - VERY GOOD ~ Corners may be just a bit blunt or rounded. Almost undetectable crease or bend that does not detract from overall appearance of the picture side. May have writing or postal use on address side. A very collectible card.
G - GOOD ~ Corners may be lightly blunt/rounded with noticeable bends or creases. May be postally used or have writing on address side. Less than VG.
FR - FAIR ~ Card is intact. Excess soil, stains, creases, writing, or cancellation may affect picture. Could be a scarce card that is difficult to find in any condition.PayPalâe"eBay's service to make fast, easy, and secure payments for your eBay purchases!
