well i believe, or at least i hope what you are getting at is seller intregrity and how sometimes their view of "mint" may not coincide with the buyer's.
any time i say that my used guns are physically mint or "like new"...they are...no doubt. that is just because i have no interest in lieing about a sale and tarnishing my name....its just not my style.
the terms "mint" and "NIB" are two COMPLETELY different things with CLEAR differences between them.
