Here is a key to our toy grading scale:


MINT-as made, virtually perfect
near MINT-a small imperfection or two but evidencing no playwear
EXC - a toy with some minor playwear that still has a new appearance at arm's length
VG - a toy with obvious wear, but still presents well.
GOOD-a toy that is 100% intact but shows fairly extensive playwear; may be missing some original parts or show signs of fatigue.
FAIR-a toy with very extensive wear and missing a good portion of original paint. Parts may be missing and fatigue evident but the model will have a somewhat complete appearance. With the exception of rare models, pieces in this condition are not collectible.


MINT - as-made, virtually perfect
near MINT - sharp and bright with a MINT appearance with a couple of slight imperfections.
EXC - a box that may either show some loss of brightness, an area of minor graffiti or an area of fatigue but still presents well.
VG - a box that will show a combination of fatigue, graffiti, staining or fading of color, but is structurally sound with a decent overall look.
GOOD - a box with extensive wear and fatigue which may be evidencing some paper loss, but still is displayable.
FAIR - a box with damage (bad tears, missing an end panel, complete sides obscured by graffiti, etc) that is minimally collectible and displays poorly.

As full time coin dealers , we tend to apply coin grading standards to our toys. In other words, we make an effort to grade conservatively.

Please note! If you have a feedback rating of less than ten (10), please call or email our offices before attempting to purchase this item.
