Poor ™
Items graded under this ranking will have visible flaws such as discoloration, scarring, tearing and/or poor taxidermy quality.

Estimate: Items with severe flaws or damage qualify to receive this ranking.
Recommendation: This category is ideal only for the buyer who, for example, intend to hang the item on the outside of a cabin or similar structure where snow, rain and sun will take their toll and further degrade the item over time, making the purchase of a higher quality mount unnecessary.
The Classic Grade with decorative accents
Classic ™
The “Classic” grade is unique to all the other grades in our system because it includes multiple qualifiers. First, the mount must be of great quality, and will most often grade in the Nice, or Excellent grade category. Second, the item will feature custom-made scenery, such as a border/frame or setting artistically enhanced by several traditional visual accents.
Items with the Classic grade will most often include a mount of Nice or Excellent quality.
Items including extensive, custom-made bucolic accents will receive this grade.
Recommendation: This category is perfect for the buyer who is looking for a one-of-a-kind piece that features old-fashioned flavor, hunting and fishing accessories, or represents something timeless, and traditionally found in a setting like a cabin or hunting lodge.

The following grades are eligible to receive the plus designation: Premier, Excellent, Nice, Fair and Vintage. Poor and World Class are not eligible to receive the plus designation.
Each item receiving a plus will be at the upper portion of the grade.
Estimate: the top 25% of each category receives the plus designation.
Recommendation: Look for plus grades if you would like the best possible mount without paying the next tier level price.

Examples of attributes eligible to receive the Star designation may include: a rare color or blend of hair colors, a unique horn or antler shape/size or an item that has an overall exceptional appearance/attribute that can’t be reflected by its grade alone. Pricing will vary for Star Graded items on a per item basis.
The Star designation is given to items with exceptional overall appearances.
