Question: If a corner comes to an exact point, does that mean it is a "Mint" corner?
Answer: This is a great question. A corner may come to an exact point and still not be mint. For example, the corner may have damage to the top layer of paper or the corner may have a slight bend to it despite the tip being unharmed. In addition, there are certain types of cards that were manufactured without razor sharp, pointed corners. Examples of that can be seen, on occasion, on rough-cut cards in various sets or in specific sets like the 1959 Fleer Ted Williams set from time to time. In the case of the 1959 Fleer set, sometimes, the corners can remain mint despite not appearing extremely pointed.
