Grading Definitions

GRADE   10+ The exceptional perfect artifact. One of the few half dozen best known to exist and near impossible to obtain. Perfect in every way, including ranking, material, symmetry and form. The best example you would ever expect to see of any given type. This grade is extremely rare, and can apply to all size artifacts that normally occur in a given type.
GRADE   10

A perfect artifact, including ranking, material, symmetry and form. This grade is extremely rare, and applies to all sizes of artifacts that normally occur in a given type. A piece does not have to be typically larger than normal to qualify for this ranking.


Near perfect artifact but lacking just a little in material or original manufacturing form. It may have a minor ancient or modern defect to keep it out of a 10 category. Still very rare, most high grade artifacts would fall into this category.


Better than an average grade artifact, but not quite nice enough to get a high ranking. Size, symmetry and overall quality at this grade are still above the overall average and a few minor imperfections may be more prevalently noticeable. Many artifacts in this grade are still very hard to find in most cases and are still considered a very collectible grade.


The average quality that is found for any given type of artifact. Usually with more noticeable detractions in concern to overall symmetry and eye appeal or due to more serious damages that have occurred.

GRADE 1 - 3 An artifact that exhibits below average overall quality. A once better artifact with more serious faults and damage would fall into this grade. The most common grade found and correspondingly, the least valuable.
