CreationOddysey, I buy them when I can without a faceup, that's usually new. When buying a used one I usually wipe the faceup and start fresh. I recently purchased a Ruby from DDE. She had a faceup, but knowing that I could not order a new one I bought her anyway. The first thing I did was wipe her faceup off. Sadly though it's been too wet and humid to use the sealant, so she's been sitting around waiting.
