Default Why is PSA 6 EX-MT and not EX-NM

Sometimes when scrolling on ebay and the pictures are small....

PSA 6s look like 8 on the smaller pictures..and i also see a 'mt' and not a 'nm' and have to take a double take that the card is a 6 and not an 8

If a 8 is NM to MT..and a 7 is NM

shouldnt a 6 be EX to NM...and not EX to MT. Doesnt it stand to reason that EX-NM woudl be a better indicator for a psa 6..?

just wondering as my eyes are getting bad and i see a blurry 8 and a 'MT'..and i have to take a double take to determine its a 6..and not an 8 ... if it said NM... i make no double take...

maybe im the only one with this train of thought but hey its watercooler talk...dont hate the player..
