Items and products at dphtrading.com are available in 5 qualities:

  • 1. Quality (New)
    Items are completely new without any defects and flaws.

  • 2. Quality (New)
    Items are completely new, but sold cheaper due to small imperfections. Upon completion the manufacturer checks the quality, and if an item has even the smallest of errors or defects it cannot pass the quality check 100 %. These items are then sold cheaper due to their imperfections. Usually the manufacturer marks these 2. Quality items by making an subtle scratch across the trademark at the bottom.

  • 1. Quality
    Items are 1st grade, in perfect condition, without defects - This applies to both antique, old and used items, but also to all *annual items.

  • 2. Quality
    Items are 2nd grade, due to small imperfections. If an item does not reach the normal production standard either the manufacturer or DPH Trading have categorized the item as a 2. Quality. Items such as these are then sold at bargain prices due to the small errors or imperfections. - this applies to both antique, old and used items, but also to all *annual items.
