Pin Grading Policy

Pin Grading is subjective and varies from maker to maker. Since enamel pins are handmade items, it is normal that they may have natural variations and small imperfections that can occur during the production process. Pins will rarely appear 'perfect' and we kept this in mind while creating our grading policy.

We will always do our best to send out the best pins available! However, if there is an issue upon receiving our pins, please email us with photos and an explanation of your problem to sleepingwolvesart@gmail.com so we can assist you.

A-GRADE (STANDARD PIN)

Near "Perfect" Pins

The highest quality of pin that we offer. Extremely minor natural imperfections if any at all.

B-GRADE (SECONDS PIN)

Slightly Imperfect Pins

Not immediately noticeable cosmetic imperfections that are not too distracting and therefore sold at a slightly discounted price. Perfect for everyday wear and use!

Imperfections include, but are not limited to:

minor scratches, dents, dust/dirt specks in the enamel, low enamel fill areas, uneven enamel, micro air bubbles, mixed color areas, wiggly pin posts, or small metal plating issues.

C-GRADE (SECONDS PIN)

Obviously Flawed Pins

Very noticeable cosmetic issues. May contain more than one flaw.

Imperfections include, but are not limited to:

heavy oxidation in plating, deep scuffs, scratches, or dents, dust/dirt specks in the enamel, one or multiple low enamel fill areas, uneven enamel, air bubbles, mixed color, wiggly pin posts, missing or chipped enamel, peeling enamel.
