I SPECIALIZE IN THE SALE OF SUPER RARE COLLECTOR-GRADE (AFA 80 NM) AND INVESTMENT-GRADE (AFA 85 NM+) STAR WARS MOC ACTION FIGURES! I ALSO PAY TOP DOLLAR FOR STAR WARS PIECES AND COLLECTIONS! Once a figure is AFA graded, it is carefully cased inside of a durable acrylic case.It is then completely sealed from human contact, unless someone makes the conscious choice of breaking it out of the case. Therefore, your figure is kept in the same condition as it was when it was graded. It will not be touched by human hands and the hard acrylic prevents it from sustaining any additional creases, bubble dings, or other damage. The Gold level consists of the grades 100, 95, and 90. The select few figures that receive these grades are among the highest quality in existence. A very small percentage of figures submitted to AFA receive a Gold grade. The flaws are very minor, very subtle, and are sometimes very hard to identify with the naked eye. The collector who is extremely condition sensitive will be satisfied with the condition of a Gold level figure. AFA has recently adopted a "plus grade" for the silver and gold level scales to better identify items which are borderline grades. Look for the "+" sign next AFA grades that are 75 or higher.
The Silver level consists of the grades 85, 80, and 75. The figures that receive these grades are in excellent condition.
A figure graded an 85 will often be referred to as'case fresh' and should be very close to gold level condition. The average figure pulled from a store shelf is usually an 80, which represents a nice speciman with minor flaws apparent upon close inspection. The final Silver level grade, a 75, represents an item with more minor flaws than the average Silver level piece. An item grading 75 does have significant wear but does not have major flaws which would draw the eye to them at first glance. For most high grade collectors, an 85 is satisfactory.For most discriminating collectors, an 80 is satisfactory. A 75 will be satisfactory to those who are not overly concerned with light stresses, small bubble imperfections, and other flaws which do not jump out at first glance. Therefore, the Silver level grades do represent a much larger range than the Gold level grades. The AFA Bronze level consists of the grades 70 and below.
Items which receive these grades typically have damage ranging from simply noticeable upon first glance to extremely significant. Packaging may have significant stressing or creasing and a blister or window may be crushed or cracked.
The Bronze level covers the largest range of conditions and the scope of flaws will range considerably. Condition for Bronze level items is determined by how many'major flaws are present and how severe each flaw is.Bronze level items may have major flaws such as a torn off or cut-out POP or other large paper tears. Bronze level items may not be satisfactory to condition sensitive collectors. The item "STAR WARS POTF R2-D2 With POP-UP LIGHT SABER AFA U85+ GOLD!
