This is a 1.75in enamel pin inspired by VE Scwab’s A Darker Shade Of Magic.
A standard enamel pin is a pin that is pretty much perfect. There might be some light scratches, but these pins are free from any major defects that make the pin a second grade. what are ‘seconds’ pins? A second grade enamel pin is a pin that has more imperfections in comparison to a standard pin. You can expect to see one or more of these imperfections on a second grade enamel pin: -Scuff and scratches -Uneven enamel surface -Small-Large dots/pooling of misplaced color -Multiple air bubbles or large air bubbles -Missing enamel what’s the difference between ‘B’ and ‘C’ grade? The different grades represent the varying degrees of imperfections in comparison to a standard pin. You can expect to see more imperfections in a ‘C’ grade pin than a ‘B’ grade. In some ‘B’ grade pins the imperfections may be small scratches or air bubbles while in comparison ‘C’ grade pins may have a lot of scratches or overflow of enamel.
I have a few B grade pins and those are listed on a separate listing for $5 along with some remaining LoTR pins.
