"second" quality diapers

Is there a way to tell if a diaper is second quality? Like do they cut the tags or anything? I ask because I bought quite a few diapers on FSOT and during my first couple of transactions I know I didn't get what I paid for (but I didn't really realize it at the time ). Since I obviously can't be sure of what I bought I want to make sure when I resell them that they are accurately represented.

I also know I bought some Thirsties covers at a discounted price but I THINK that was because they were discontinued colors and NOT 2nd quality.

Thanks!

Many brands will mark the tag with a black dot or slash, but I don't know if everyone does.

I have bought 2nd quality prowraps new and they usually cut the tag. Never did see a difference in the quality as compared to first quality though.

Re: "second" quality diapers

All I've bought was 2nd BG 3.0's and they have X's on the tags. I also had gotten some 2nd BSWW and the tags were cut on those

Thirsties came out with a new addition so it's like V1 or V2's that is why they were cheaper- not 2nd's just the old edition

My FB seconds have a black slash on the inside tag. KL0s have the same.

Re: "second" quality diapers

I love buying seconds because they are still of great quality AND are super cheap compared to first quality. I think all of my seconds have a mark on the tag. They are usually marked in some way because seconds are not covered by warranties.
