This is an example of basic grading when it comes to rating figures and collectibles. But keep in mind that this is only a basic representation to aid you in grading or buying figures and while all people use the same system some people may be stricter than others on thier grading, or they may be more leinient. For example one person may require it to be a Case Fresh figure to be a C-10, on the other hand another person may say his figure with no accesories is a C-9. With this in mind be sure to make sure that you know what your buying before making an offer. This guide is ONLY here to give you an idea of what the numbers mean and Registered users are not required to follow this system so do not make an offer on a C-9 figure expecting to be exactly as described by this guide. Please make sure you are well informed on the merchandise BEFORE you buy, because while misrepresenting a figure is good reason to list a person as a bad seller, we dont want to list someone who is the victim of a simple misunderstanding. If you feel that the information provided in the ad does not describe the item to your satisfaction then e-mail the other party and ask them more questions, or some members may have an ICQ number, Phone number, or other means of contact other than thier e-mail. This info would be listed in thier user profile, but members have a right to have thier profile withheld. Users with thier profile available will have a picture of sunglasses next to thier nickname on the ad.
