As new. No discernable faults. To all intents and purposes a brand new copy. What distinguishes Near Mint from Mint is that Mint is supposed to represent perfection. As most uncirculated copies are rarely 'perfect', the term Mint is rarely used (or should be viewed with caution).

A nice collectable copy, that may show a few signs of wear. At arms length it should look nearly new, but on closer inspection, you may spot small faults - a small light crease, a few spine creases, a small stain, interior pages not perfect white (light browning at the edges OK - heavy browning not OK in this grade). Should still look nice, but not perfect.

A pretty poor copy. Complete with all pages, but may have multiple faults, small chunks missing (but not affecting story), noticebaly brown pages.
