FAIR: Factory finish may be diminished, scratches from normal use, no deep scratches or dings unless noted, any steel blades may have some scratches POOR: Factory finish is gone; the piece may have dings and deep scratches SPECIAL NOTE: Tarnish is NOT considered in condition standards as it is NOT a damage or defect and is completely normal for Sterling, Other Silvers Including 'Coin Silver', Silverplate and some other metals. It can be removed easily (in most cases) with polishes. You will even see factory sealed pieces with tarnish. We polish ALL listings of Sterling, Other Silvers, and Silverplate Pieces UNLESS otherwise noted OR because you requested they not be polished. 'Rare' pieces are normally not polished and left to the buyer's discretion. In most cases, we do not polish until a listing is 'Sold', UNLESS an item we purchase at sale is heavily covered in tarnish to ensure there are no hidden damages underneath the tarnish. Please indicate in check out if you do NOT want your piece(s) polished or they WILL arrive lightly hand-polished. We ONLY use 'MAAS Silver Polish/Metal Protectant' on our listings, and highly recommend it; especially on old Steel/Carbon Steel Blades of knives. Thank you!
