How do you grade your pins?
Pins are a primarily a handmade item, and as such are not usually perfect. My pins are NOT priced or listed as fantasy pins, and therefor the quality is going to be a Standard, wearable quality.
Standard Grade: Meant to be worn! Free of major defects but *may* exhibit minor imperfections such as: tiny stray glitter specs, superficial tiny bubble in enamel or epoxy coating, tiny specs of missing enamel in the very tiny spots, imperfections in the metal on the sides or back of the pin, superficial scratches to metal surfaces (especially large metal areas), superficial paint drops or bleeds, or slight discoloring against screen printed edges.
B Grade: For budget collectors. Multiple or major defects of the types noted above, or: peeling enamel, missing enamel, or other unexpected problems.
