"DON'T FEAR THE PAINT RASH" COLLECTION!
Mint in the Box, Never Displayed, Storage Find
descriptions used on "Vinny's" are not to be confused with other
pages on the PhillyMint site or other diecast sites on the internet.
Models on Vinny's that are listed with defects are distressed and sold as-is. Models
without defects listed are #1 First Quality New or Mint minus paperwork or
when noted, styrofoam box only, missing outside box (FM shipping sleeve).
The descriptions such as mint, excellent; etc, are used to describe the overall condition of the model WITHOUT THE FLAWS spelled out in the condition column. Obviously a model described as mint, with a broken mirror is not mint. But by the same token a model played with in the neighbors sandbox is distressed but not to the same degree. You should have a pretty good idea of the overall condition WITHOUT the defects. ALL "Vinny" SELECTIONS LISTED ARE NON-RETURNABLE and are sold AS IS. We do our best to describe whatever imperfections or defects that may be present. However, if you discover a defect that we may have missed, the model is NOT RETURNABLE-SOLD AS IS, NO EXCEPTIONS, NO UPS DAMAGE CLAIMS. We carefully bubble wrap models that don't have the original box. We then double-box. Models are sold without papers unless noted .

no dust, defects or signs of wear. May need
light cleaning because of display “film” caused by a
non-airtight display. Acceptable to most all collectors and diecast
G- Good: A former"dust car" that may need cleaning and detailing. Minor repair may have been done correctly. A presentable model with all the correct parts.
D- Distressed: Missing parts or damaged. Some can be displayed, others for parts only.
