Pin Grading Guide

All enamel pins are filled and polished by hand. As a result, there may be small variations or slight defects from pin to pin. Please keep this in mind while buying!

That being said, all pins are personally inspected and sorted before shipping to ensure everyone receives the same standard of quality.

Pins are sorted into three grades: standard, seconds, and unsellables.


Standard Pins (A-Grade)

Standard pins are the highest grade that I offer. Since they are handmade, they may have minor cosmetic imperfections.

Examples of possible Standard Pin imperfections:


Seconds Pins (B-Grade)

Seconds pins have more noticeable flaws and are sold at a discount.

Examples of possible Seconds Pins imperfections:


Unsellable Pins (C-Grade)

Unsellable pins have major, noticeable flaws. These are not sold to customers unless requested, and are heavily discounted.

Examples of possible Unsellable Pins imperfections:


If you have questions about the type of pin you are receiving please feel free to contact me! I'm always happy to provide photo samples of specific pins to ensure that you get the pin quality you're looking for.
