#1 grade pallets are more readily available but will have a more worn appearance than a new pallet. The specs on an #1 grade are more consistent than on a #2 grade pallet and will never have any block repairs to the stringers. The overall appearance is also better as a #1 grade pallets likely has had fewer cycles than a #2 grade.
