Grading

Our enamel pin shop has 2 quality grades available: Firsts and seconds. Firsts are not collector grade pins, we do not sell those.

  • Firsts may have minor flaws, such as small scratches in the enamel or plating. These are unavoidable during the manufacturing process, and and not visible unless examined closely.
  • Seconds are imperfect, but cheap, enamel pins. They can include flaws such as tarnished metal, small chips, uneven colouring, etc. All sales for seconds are final, and seconds do not come on backing cards.

All photos on our site are either First grade or Collector grade pins.
