Pin Grading Policy


Enamel pins are handmade items that have natural variations and slight flaws that can occur during the production process. No pin will be perfect and every pin maker’s grading standard varies. Please read below for my grading standard.

A Grades
No major defects but may exhibit very minor imperfections that can only be seen under close inspection.

🖤 Stray glitter
🖤 Wiggly posts
🖤 Low-fill enamel in small areas
🖤 Tiny pores in glittery areas
🖤 Slightly misaligned screen printing
🖤 Small traces of random debris (dust, fuzz, etc.)
🖤 Tiny bubbles in enamel, glitter or epoxy coating
🖤 Light scuffing, scratches, dents, enamel bleeding
🖤 Slight discoloration and imperfections in/on the metal plating on the sides and /or back of the pin
🖤 Minor excess metal in or around edges of pin
🖤 Minor enamel miscoloration
🖤 Slightly thicker metal outlines
🖤 Slightly chipped plating on the side(s)

B Grades
More noticeable minor defects, yet still very wearable!

🖤 Moving posts
🖤 Low-fill in large areas
🖤 Chipped metal plating
🖤 Discoloration or staining
🖤 Missing enamel or plating
🖤 Wrong enamel fill colors
🖤 Large dents, divots, scratches
🖤 Missing or badly printed screen printing
