    Wagriff has made some great points. There are a variety of different "artificial aging" techniques used to make items appear "used" or "worn."

In the end, it simply comes down to how comfortable you'd be having a particular piece in your collection, based on what you (and other experienced and knowledgeable collectors) can tell about it.
