Pins are all handmade, making each one "one of a kind." Please refer to the descriptions below for more detailed information on how I grade my pins.
Very little to no flaws. From a distance of about 6 inches or less, you likely won't notice anything wrong with the pins. They may have slightly lower filled enamel, small scratches on the metal, etc. but are not very noticeable.
Slight discount due to more visible flaws. May include some dust particles trapped inside the enamel, thick metal lines, lower filled enamel, small nicks in the enamel, scratches on the enamel, or slightly slanted posts. Can be noticed from a distance.
Highly discounted due to visible flaws in the pin such as missing enamel, lots of low filled enamel, deep scratches, dents, etc.
