Enamel Pin Grading

Pins are graded into 3 quality grade. Standard Pins & Seconds. Seconds are then graded into B & C. 

Standard Pins/ A-grade pins

Standard Pins are near-perfect or perfect pins, but all pins are handmade hence, they may still contain minor imperfections.

Examples of these include but are not limited to:

  • Small and/or light scratches on the pin
  • Uneven metal areas
  • Small dirt/dust lodged in the colors
  • Slight misalignment in screen-printing

Seconds Pins (B and/or C)

Seconds Pins are graded into B & C.

C grades have more noticeable flaws and are hence sold at a huge discounted price. Such flaws include but are not limited to:

  • Scratches or marks across larger areas of the pin
  • Obvious dirt, dust or patches on pin
  • Large areas of oxidization on the metal 
  • Badly misaligned or missing screen-printing.
  • Wobbly backings or crooked backings
  • Underfilled or overfilled areas. 

I hope this helps with a better understanding of how the pins are graded! Do reach out to us if you have any further questions!
