'MINT 'buyer beware, 'mint' isn't always mint condition

Like if this guide is helpful
'Mint' means 'from the mint' ie the pressing of coins, coins not yet in circulation, therefore never used.

If I buy an album (15 years experience from the days of Record Collector (UK)) and it is listed as MINT, ir means it has never been used, never been played, it is still fully wrapped, never opened, not touched, not looked upon, virgin, unsoiled...

DO YOU GET THE IDEA?

There are those among us sellers, business and private who will list an item as 'MINT' when it has been used, or opened, or touched.

PLEASE DON'T LIST AS MINT.

If your girlfriend or boyfriend says they are a virgin but they have had sex, they're NOT a virgin.

If the item  you are selling has been 'switched on', 'used', 'played with', 'operated', TOUCHED out of wrapper, activated, dialed or any VERB.

IT IS NOT MINT.

don't advertise as such.

Used/played once is not mint, opened is not mint, PLEASE GET THE FECKING IDEA.
