    You are the one to decide and offer.
    Customers are the ones to decide and buy OR not buy.
    There is no federal law that prohibits this AFAIK (check your local rules).


    In general though the customers will decline per the general experience.
    The point of cut comb product is its present-ability - so the capped combs certainly win in this department.
    All it is to it.

    I would not sell any of that “cut comb” honey, it all looks ugly; definitely some drone brood comb, and the wax looks like it might be tough. And, no, you shouldn’t sell cut comb honey with lots of uncapped cells. Deb

    Near 100% capped is one of my first "qualifiers" , then no brood comb, then "looks good". If an end is not all capped on a mostly capped frame the uncapped goes on the table for my use.
    IMO fine to eat not the optimum sell product. Also the uncapped will not have the shelf life and will tend to ferment.
