This is a listing for flawed or imperfect enamel pins. The selection is dependent upon which designs have flawed units. Some flaws are more obvious than others, but all of these pins are still very wearable. Seconds Grades (B Grades) have been deemed less than "Standard Grade/A Grade" and may exhibit some of the following imperfections...
Discoloration on enamel
Discoloration on metal
Dull or unpolished enamel or metal
Enamel staining on metal
Large scratches on enamel
Small areas of missing enamel
One post on the back of pins that normally have two posts
Missing metal lines
Overfilled enamel covering metal lines
Lint and dust on soft enamel
Scratches and small gouges on soft enamel
Incorrectly filled color areas
