    Perhaps it comes with case candy..."Starlight Mints"?

    Or maybe an air freshener...

    Just like when you buy a heavy relic custom shop. It’s still mint but fake aged.

    If it was made that way as a relic and no further damage, then I guess ... yes.... it could be mint!

    But if one is looking to buy something like this, does it even matter if it is “mint condition” or “heavily used” condition?

    My favourite ad ever, was when major retailers would advertise Fender Roadworn guitars for sale as blemished!!!

    How can you tell ???

    It must have been mint once, but probably not in this century.
