C. Grading of Medals and Other Items
Orders, Decorations and Medals were intended to be worn and used. In this regard, most medals show signs of wear to one degree or another. A medal that exhibits signs of wear does not detract materially from the historical significance of the item

In our experience the majority of British medals are usually found in VF condition

We pride ourselves in the ability to grade medals honestly and conservatively, using the below standard;

  • EF (Extra Fine): The finest condition a medal can generally be expected to be found in
  • GVF (Good Very Fine): With very few blemishes or marks, and or deeply toned
  • VF (Very Fine): With surface wear & minor contact marks to the obverse/reverse, and or rim
  • GF (Good Fine): Having significant overall wear, edge knocks and or loose suspender
  • F (Fine): A medal in generally poor overall defective condition

For books, badges and ribbons we may adhere to other more appropriate grading standards

Medal Ribbons: We endeavour to supply medal ribbons for all of the medals that are listed.. Note however, that ribbons will be variable in quality, size and condition. Should a medal not have a ribbon it will be described as N/R
