Before the release of any new pin (or batch thereof) I conduct a rigorous quality control assessment of every. single. one. On occasions I find a pin that is less than perfect and that is when it will end up in this listing.
There are two classifications of imperfect pins: B grade and C grade.
B grade pins have very minor superficial imperfections that aren't immediately noticeable including (but not limited to)
- minuscule bubbles in the enamel
- minor scratches in the metal
- slightly uneven coverage of enamel or epoxy
C grade pins have noticeable, even if sometimes still minor, imperfections including (but not limited to)
- uneven coverage of enamel or epoxy
- enamel on the metal
- missing enamel
- uneven form, i.e. where the pin wasn't perfectly formed from the original mold
Whether B or C grade, all pins are still wearable.
These magpies measure 1.75" in height, are hard enamel and have two posts (complete with rubber clutches) to stop it spinning. If you want to ensure the pin doesn't come off I strongly recommend purchasing locking backs separately here. If you do purchase these please read the section on how to use them so as to avoid breaking the backs off the pin.
