GRADING SYSTEM

Enamel pins are handmade therefore more prone to cosmetic imperfections. Here are some examples of them.

Examples of Standard (best of the batch) grade imperfections:
- Small speck(s), pore(s), bubble(s), or debris
- Minor metal discoloration
- Defects only seen under scrutiny

Examples of B-Grade imperfections:
- More noticeable speck(s), pore(s), bubble(s), or debris
- Some metal discoloration
- Minor scratch(es)

Examples of Seconds grade imperfections:
- Obvious enamel overfill(s)
- Noticeable smudge(s)/stain(s)
- Completely unfilled area(s)
- Lowly filled area(s)
- Heavy metal discoloration/oxidation
- Large scratch(es) 
- Chipped dyed/metal plating

Everything listed doesn't mean that they all apply to a Standard, B-Grade, or Seconds grade pin. Please keep in mind that the back and the rubber clutches are not part of the grading process.
