Grading and scans are intended to give the buyer as much prior knowledge as possible toward an items condition and appearance. However, scans are optimized in low resolution for faster load time and may appear unsharp. Print imperfections will be evident in the scan by looking in the zoom view. Significant damage will be noted in the description. Tonal quality of prints may differ from monitor appearance due to variances in calibration. Aesthetic satisfaction is guaranteed.
