Question about Indian Almond Leaves?

I am finally going to get some of these and I was wondering, does it matter what kind I get?
I found a seller on Ebay who sells different kinds, the one I was looking at is this:

Thanks for reading! ^__^

I just started using IAL and ordered grade A ones... I'm not sure why someone would want leaves that aren't ripped (grade A) unless they don't want them leaching as fast in to the water. Hopefully some who uses them all the time will advise you! :)

Grade C is way more natural....some sellers just iron out non dried leaves so you drop them in your tanks and they rot and pollute your water!

Amy is a very good seller. If you order IAL from the IBC site they usually come from her.
Anyway if you want to use IAL for the betta to blow his nest under, then grade A or B would be a good choice. If your just going to use it to make good black water for them then grade C or D is good.
I only buy C or D
When I used to buy A, and the betta would blow a nest. By the time they spawn the leaf would be water logged and sink. Messing up the whole bubble nest. But the IAL leaves do help so much, the bubbles stick together so nice..

I've gotten grade c leaves from Amy and they're always fine. She's very nice too.
