Excellent: Brand New/ As new Condition.
Very Good: May have some very slight surface scratching from knife marks, or light wear consistent with occasional light use, tiny manufacturing blemishes, only noticeable on very close inspection. These items may have a "seconds" mark which might be on the base of the item, and varies according to the manufacturer. These items, on a more in depth inspection, would uncover small flaws or knife marks. Without that close inspection it would be hard to identify any manufacturing defects.
