Condition guide descriptions:

Mint - Without flaws of any kind. No excuses for age. Pieces in this condition are extremely rare even for those commonly found. Most H-D circus pieces are not known in this condition.
Excellent - Displayable in even the best quality collections. Minor flaws in paint and costume. Rarely does one find Humpty Dumpty circus pieces any better.
Very Good - Some paint loss or costume flaws. Still a nice display piece. Suitable for all but the fussiest collectors. Rare pieces are very acceptable in this condition.
Good - Quite displayable but has considerable paint or costume damage.
Fair - Looks pretty bad, ugly looking paint or clothing.

Poor - Barely acceptable condition for circus displays. Might benefit from some restoration.
Rough - Too poor to restore. Suitable for repainting to look like an original or for fantasy circuses. 

Areas of damage, repaint, missing or replaced parts are described. Symbols +- are used to describe little better then, or worse than condition code standard.
