MINI GRADING GUIDE Because hobbies have different words for describing condition, I'd like to tell you how I grade the types of collectibles I sell. Books are graded with the ABA standard in mind. That means books range from G (good).
I don't use a VFN or any form of Mint to describe a book. A book that is NF (near fine) can also be thought of as almost new. A full list of typical conditions range from: G, VG, VG+, VG+/NF, NF, to FN. You may be interested in our other listings.
