So I ordered these as my original chrome handles had pits even though I tried to clean them up. I did find two tiny scratches (one on each handle) after I removed the packaging. The packaging was not damaged at all, and I think it was a chroming process, however, these were very small and short - most eyes won't see it. The mechanical lever inside the handle hole didn't line up and was difficult to get the screw in...seeing I really purchased these for the new chrome, I used the original mechanical levers and they lined up with the hole perfectly. Certainly brings the "NEW" back into your handles.
