I WONDER WHY=====SOMEBODY HELP ME

Post by w2rdt » Tue Jul 31, 2007 4:29 am

I AM NEW TO QTH, BUT NOT NEW TO DEALING. I GET A LITTLE
DISTURBED BY THE MANY MANY SALES WHERE,"NO MIC-NO
POWER CORD. BUT, BUT THIS IS A 9 OF 10 OR MINT OR NEVER
USED OTHER THAN 10 METERS."
I AM BUILDING THE UNITS FOR MY SHACK AND AM LQQKING
FOR DECENT USED TRANSCEIVERS. I GET A WARNING EACH
TIME I SEE THOSE WARNING SIGNS.
AM I TOO CRITICAL?
OF COURSE, "ALL EQUIPMENT AS NEW, BUT BUT ALL ITEMS
ARE AS-IS, BUT THEY ARE MINT.

You are absolutely correct. If original accessories are missing the equipment offered is of lower value and does not deserve the so-called MINT label. As a matter of fact, there is no such thing as a MINT piece of electronic equipment. The term MINT is reserved exclusively for items manufactured in a mint, i.e. coins.

You might find the condition standards offered on the site below enlightening.

Hi, got a kick out of your renditions of "Mint", after thinking the word
could be also used for Mint Julips-Mint candy, BUT NO MINT RADIO.
tAKE iM SURE WE WILL CROSS PATHS AGAIN.
