Weíve had very few damage problems with American Sweetheart. The plates and bowls do not have sharply defined ridges where the rims meet the center, which is such a problem spot in other glass. Do be careful of the protruding points between the larger scallops on most pieces and of course check for rough spots on the edge of the rim and along the top and bottom of the rim. If you like the trimmed Monax glass then check the trim condition and also its color.
This glass doesnít seem to scratch as badly as some; at least we have not come across pieces with a lot of wear. Iím not sure whether people used this for their good dishes since it looks so delicate and pretty or we have just been lucky. It is always worth asking about rough spots and wear when you buy without seeing and holding the glass. One time we went to a January auction outdoors in Michigan and bought a beautiful pink soup bowl. We inspected it many times and found no damage, but I detected a tiny rough spot when listing it. Thatís a good lesson, that if someone else touches your glass after you, that you want to reconfirm condition. The other lesson is not to try and feel rough spots when your hands are frozen!
