Why this discount?
The last two photos show the minor defects of this particular product for sale.
The quality standard for these boards is very high and as they enter the warehouse each one is inspected to make sure they are absolutely amazing. Sometimes they are not quite amazing, so we move them to imperfect status, for reasons that might be insignificant or imperceptible to some people. But we want to keep the quality amazing for those sold as first rate. Additionally, sometimes minor imperfections appear during the manufacturing process and it would be a shame to discard the product after so much effort and material has gone into making it to that point. Sometimes we accepted a few of these boards at a discounted rate and pass the savings on to someone who loves this style of chessboard but really wants a break on price.
