PIN GRADING

ENAMEL PIN QUALITY GRADING GUIDE

Since enamel pins are manufactured by hand not every pin will look perfect and slight flaws may occur. Once pins arrive we will inspect each closely and categorize them to the best of our ability using our personal grading criteria. Please take that into account while buying!

 

STANDARD-GRADE 

Standard pins are the highest quality pins we offer. They should be close to perfect but may exhibit minor flaws (most only visible under certain light and angles) such as:

- Miniscule bubbles / dots on metal or enamel
- Light scratches/scuffing on metal or enamel
- Minor discolorations or unevenness in the metal
- Slight underfill, overfill or uneven areas 
- Slight misaligned printing  

 

SECONDS

Second pins exhbibit noticeable flaws and are therefore being sold at a discount. They may include but are not limited to the following:

- Dust / dirt specs / bubbles 
- Scratches / scuffing on plating or enamel
- Major underfill or overfill 
- Small area of missing enamel
- Obvious discoloration of metal or enamel 
Badly misaligned or missing printing
