Default The Odyssey of Mr. D, or How to Textually Pontificate While Mounted on a Soapbox.

A Crooks guide to the terms “Patina” and “Classic”
by Mr. D


Patina

“Patina” should sensibly refer defined as an attractive change in surface appearance caused by age. Many surfaces and finishes will have a very attractive appearance that can only be achieved by the passage of time.

Having said that, patina should never be confused with simple damage and deterioration. In selling an item “crooks” (those who will say anything to maximize the profit in a sale) often claim that rust, oxidation, wear, damage, and filth in general is “patina” and should be treasured and not be disturbed when dealing with the “easily fooled” (commonly termed as suckers). This approach has the obvious advantage for the seller of avoiding obviously necessary repairs and restoration of a sales item.

In a reversal of that approach when buying an item a “crook” may refer to actual attractive Patina as wear and damage that needs restoration thereby lowering the value of the item being purchased. Of course, after the crook purchases the item it will be then called “patina” to increase its value.

Classic

Classic should refer to something judged to be of the highest quality or outstanding of its kind. Being old and or rare does not make something classic. The droppings of an extinct Carrier Pigeon are both old and rare, but we should not consider them “classic”. They should still be recognized as “chit”! LOL!

What's the point of this? Are you learning / pondering some thoughts?

Love the examples of Patina! LOL! At almost 72, I have a lot of Patina on my face when I look in the mirror in the morning!
