Pin grading is subjective and varies from maker to maker. Since enamel pins are handmade items, they rarely, if ever, will appear 'perfect'. I will always do my best to send out the highest quality pins available from each batch.

All enamel pins are personally graded and categorized by me before being shipped out to make sure that everyone receives the same standard of quality! As a disclaimer, all of the enamel pins while manufactured are all hand-crafted filled and polished by hand, so no pin will ever be 100% perfect. Please keep this in mind while buying! Yangos Pin have 3 Grades:


Standard ("A")

The highest quality of pin that we offer. Free of major imperfections, but may exhibit the following *minor* imperfections:

  • Superficial surface speck or mark on metal or enamel surface, usually only visible from one angle
  • Slight low enamel fill in minor area of pin, only visible from one angle
  • Imperfections on the back or side of pin - only the front is considered while grading.
  • Slight darker flecks of glitter and/or small specks of stray glitter (on glitter pins) in non-central areas of the design such as the face.
  • Slightly misaligned screenprinting (only applies to pins with screenprint)
  • Other superficial imperfections that are only visible upon very close-up inspection and/or from looking at the pin under certain lighting or from a specific angle.
Seconds ("B")
Seconds pins have one or multiple imperfections listed below, and therefore slightly discounted. This grade is perfect for collectors who enjoy wearing their pins around (and who love a good discount). One of the most common pieces of feedback I receive is that my Seconds grading is "indistinguishable from most Standard-grade pins" - but regardless, Seconds pins will have some sort of guaranteed imperfection.
  • More noticeable smudges and/or staining on the metal or enamel surface
  • Mild-to-moderate metal oxidization
  • Noticeable and/or deeper surface scratches that span across the metal and/or enamel
  • Moderately loose backing posts
  • Lower fills in larger or visually important areas (low enough to be visible when the pin is viewed from nearly any angle).
  • Missing screenprint (minor details only)
  • Missing area of enamel (very small, minor areas only)
Convention Seconds ("C") [Not available for purchase online] C-grade pins may exhibit the same flaws as B-grades, except more severely. For this reason, these pins are very heavily discounted and only available for purchase at conventions in my "Discount Bin".
C-grades may have larger areas of unfilled enamel, very deep scratches, distracting dots/marks across the enamel, etc.
