In general our albums are new, but new means not necessarily perfect (Mint) and as for collectors it's very important to know the exact condition of an album we use grades as an additional information. Here are the grades we use and what they mean:

Mint - Perfect or almost perfect

Near Mint - A few minor imperfections are allowed

Very Fine - Not perfect, some minor defects are allowed

Fine - Defects are allowed, but not too much and not too serious
