Confused about pin grades? Here's a quick breakdown to help you get a clearer picture so you can decide which is best for you!
Grade A (Perfect)
Sold at full price, these pins are typically in perfect condition without any type of noticeable flaws, and they come packaged on a branded backing card. This pin grade is recommended for collectors or those who require their pins to be in pristine condition.
Grade B+ (Almost Perfect)
Sold at a slight discount, these pins are very close to perfect condition, but have very minimal flaws that aren't immediately noticeable (unless closely inspected). These flaws might include things such as extremely tiny markings and scratches. They come packaged on a branded backing card. This pin grade is recommended for people who require their pins to be in a near-perfect condition.
Grade B (Minor Imperfections)
Sold at a reduced price, these pins have some minor imperfections that may or may not be immediately visible, including but not limited to: very light surface scratches, small markings/indents, and other minor metal discolouration. They come packaged on a branded backing card. This pin grade is recommended for people who'll be wearing their pins on jackets/backpacks, or displaying them on pin boards.
Sold at half price, these pins have flaws that are typically immediately noticeable, including but not limited to: chipped enamel, visible dents, flawed metal, and other types of markings. All seconds pins come packaged in a clear plastic bag and do not include a backing card. Please note that these pins are only offered through my seconds sales, which occur about 2-3 times per year, and due to high demand, stock tends to sell out very quickly.
