Near mint conditioned items will have very minor marks of aging or use and are close to their original condition. Items in excellent condition will have no more than tiny scratches, small chips, or little marks on their outer rim or edges and the opened packaging should still be intact. The standard for very good are items that contain no more than minor surface scratches, tiny rust spots, minor flaking, and the packaging is either torn or it has none. A good grading is an item that has moderate scratches, flaking, facing, dents, rust or pitting. An item with a fair grading will have more major scratches, fading, rust spots, dents, bad chipping or flaking, while items with a poor grading are badly rusted, worn, dented, pitted, torn, chipped or flaked. The majority of items produced are manufactured in masses, so it is best if a collector looks for items that are limited editions. Coke has reproduced some of their items, which are stated as reproductions on the backs, but their value will probably never be the same the original items. Caps from Coca Cola bottles are even valuable, especially since they have been used during promotions and special additions. In fact, Coca Cola once had a contest where the winner was awarded free cases of Coke by collecting a cap for every state within the United States. Today a complete set of these caps would thrill any avid Coca Cola collector. The Internet is an excellent source for locating on-line auctions to help collectors find those hard to find item, but collectors did not know what they are bidding on.
