Minimum Size N6 - What is it in terms of unit of measurement

I know this has been discussed many, many times: what makes PSA declare that a card does not meet minimum size, i.e. N6. However, when I search discussions I usually don't see a unit of measurement used to define the maximum a card can be short and not receive an N6 designation. I sometimes see 1/32" used, but I know this is not correct (too much shortness). My experience is typically that a card cannot be shorter than 1/80" and even at 1/80" short it can still sometimes receive an N6. I have a nice vintage card that is maybe a 9 but it measures 1/60" short and can return it but can't decide what to do.

    You're never going to see that measurement.

    I agree, we will never see that measurement. If we ever did, the trimmers would know EXACTLY how far they could go.

    Not to mention it would in effect, tie PSAs hands. They want to make their decisions and not give the customer the ability to tell them their job.
