Items described likely will have been in previous use and cared for. They could be more or less than 20, to well over 100 years old. There quite possible to be imperfections due to wear over time, or even when formed.
If looking for flawless you’re not looking for pre-owned, vintage or antique. Because age makes them prone to some degree of degradation, or other imperfections associated with use. We strive to acquire items in their best condition possible for the satisfaction of the buyer and are sold “as is.”
●New = viewed as never being in service.
●Very Good = excellent aged vintage with character.
●Good = with character, some minor scuffs and or flea bites.
●Nice = some wear, scuffs, age cracks, very minor flecks or chips.
●Fair = item has cosmetic issues that don’t compromise its integrity.
●Poor = issues with item & best used as an example, care taken handling.
●Repaired = the item has been repaired and will be stated as such and rated.
●As-Is = Item could be possibly any of the above yet having a flaw, as missing a part.
New still will have character, since no one piece is absolutely perfect to another.
If Vintage it will have added time to its character, is what vintage holds and makes for appeal.
Whatever the condition any notable feature difference will be stated when discovered.
1) New Item or New Old Stock. Most items in this store are from previous owners who likely purchased the item(s) with the intent for use; to place into service.
If stated to be a “New Item,” or “New Old Stock,” it is our observed understanding that it has never been removed from its original packaging or in actual service. Extent of the previous history of the item is likely to be Unknown, see ‘TERMS OF SALE.’
2) New Retail Old Stock. If stated as such it will be considered to be similar to a “New Retail Item” (see below) though its prior purchase possibly doesn’t allow a current supply. Likely the creator or manufacturer may no longer exist, see ‘TERMS OF SALE.’
3) New Retail Item. If goods we acquired are from a company or manufacturer, it will be stated, “New Retail Item,” having no prior history of customer ownership with intent on personal use. The history can be traced only to an outlet company or manufacturer and therefore known. If purchased under this condition an exception to ‘TERMS OF SALE’ is warranted, where returns may be allowed as long as the item(s) is as sold and in their original unopened packaging. All other stated conditions herein still apply.
OCEAN RECOVERY ITEMS:
We tell what we see but there may have been something missed that you might see. Sometimes very small imperfections exists that only a camera can pinpoint. If it looks like a flea bite or worse it might be a glass works issue from long past. Glass surfaces can crack due to impurities, furnace temperature, as with handling, time of day, or week the item was made. Very fine deposits of silt can invade these areas over a century. Compounded with extreme pressure from ocean waters the item was found under. Giving a chip/crack appearance when viewed close up, as cameras can do very well.
Most all photos given are in 2D and not 3D, which adds to a narrowing of what one sees.
