Fully Scaled Mirror Carp Question

This may sound daft but does a mirror have to have total scale coverage to be classed as fully scaled? For example this fish has a small bare patch on one flank but would it still be classed as fully scaled or just a mirror?

Fully scaled I'd say. I particularly like the linear carp. Gorgeous looking fish. Nice fish that pal. Well done. 👍

Definately not a standard fully Scaled Common; It’s just a Fully scaled ‘Mirror Carp’, just at the other end of the ‘scale’ to a leather Carp which has no scales..

Since it has a bare patch, it's nearly a fully scaled mirror carp ;).

Probably the best looking of the carp variants for me, although a nicely coloured proper linear comes close.

I had this dark fully scaled mirror a couple of years ago...

I usually think commons look better as they tend to hold their shape better whereas mirrors can go a bit round which combined with the lack of scales makes them look a bit lardy but both those mirrors with all the scales are stunners 👍🏻
