Grading Scale

Grading Scale

I try to be fair and consistant with the grading scale used on this site to describe the condition something is in. Here is what to expect based on my scale:

 

Grading Scale for Loose Figures

C-10 - nothing is graded this as there is no such thing as the "perfect" item

C-9.5 - "dead mint" expect an item that is similar to being removed from a sealed package

C-9.0 - "near mint / mint" expect an item that may have a minor flaw that is not very noticable until close inspection.

C-8.5 - "good / near mint" expect an item that has some some wear that is noticeable. Expect possible paint wear and or loose joints

C-8 - "fair / good" expect an item that has heavy wear and or many loose joints

anything below C-8 would only be acceptable for customs or body parts. I currently do not offer any figures in this grade.

 

Grading scale for accessories

All accessories sold on joeparts.com are 100% original and are in mint or near mint condition. 

 

Grading Scale for body parts

All body parts are 100% original vintage parts.  Most parts are in mint condition and some may have paint wear to them. If you are in need of parts with zero wear or arms without cracked elbows please email me first to confirm condition.
