These are B, C, and D grade pins. Sometimes these pins are also referred to as "seconds."
If you want to snag some pins at a discounted price, this is a really great option for you! Use the drop down menus and choose which pin designs you'd like and which grade/quality you'd like.
So, what does B, C, or D grade mean exactly? Here are my rough descriptions:
B Grade: Close to perfect. These pins might have a small dent, smudge, or scratch, a few pieces of glitter out of place, a small piece of paint missing, low enamel fill in certain areas, some very light tarnishing, etc. These are still high quality pins.
C Grade: Slight defects. This could mean the screen printing is a little messy or faded in certain areas. Or it could mean there are a few scratches, colors out of place, a larger smudge, or something of that nature. These pins are still pretty good quality if you ask me.
D Grade: These pins are the most discounted because there's something more noticeably wrong with them. This could mean some of the screen printing is missing, there's a large scratch, a larger area of color is missing, etc. These pins are great for folks on a budget who don't care about perfection!
