t o g r a d i n g c o n d i t i o n & a b b r e v i at i o n s BY JOHN MIHOVETZ In order to properly grade a sign, I have assigned a numbered grading scale from 10 to 1. I created a scale that is easy to understand, and goes into depth on how pieces get their current grade. The 10 to 1 grading scale is currently the best way to grade Tin, Porcelain, Cardboard, & Paper Advertising. I also like to use the plus & minus system along side the numbered grading scale. The plus & minus system works well with the numbered grade because there are better looking grade 9.0 pieces when set side by side, so the plus & minus allows for a slightly better number grade. Although the grading scale is slightly subjective, I have described the process of assigning a piece a numbered grade, and gone into depth in areas on what makes the grading scale accurate. In the category of grading 10 to 9.0, I went into even more detail because this category is slightly overused in todays market, so I want to show what it takes to assign pieces into that particular grade category. Grading is also slightly less aggressive on a large piece, such as a six foot round sign. This grading scale is very useful when it comes to

10 – A grade that is rarely or never given. In order for a sign to obtain a “10.0” grade, the piece would have to have just rolled out of the original firing kiln with no age or wear whatsoever.

9.9 to 9.5 - A grade of near perfect condition. In order for pieces to grade in this category, they would most likely have to be found New Old Stock. These pieces may have only the slightest amount of edge wear, or small flaw or, “Flea Bite” style chip near a grommet or mounting hole. This piece should also have more than 95 percent of the original color & gloss intact. The piece in this category may have a factory filled flaw or light surface scratch that is not distracting to the appeal of the piece. 9.4 to 9.0 – A grade of just below perfect condition, with a slight amount of edge wear or light chipping along the outer edge, grommets, or mounting holes only. The field of the sign is free of any chips, but may allow for one “Flea Bite” chip in a non distracting area. This piece should also have more than 90 percent of original color and gloss is intact. The piece may also allow only the slightest amount of surface wear in the gloss coat, such as a light scratch or light amount of discoloration that is not distracting to the appeal of the piece.

understanding the demand of pieces in certain categories, how the grading scale dictates a sales price, or the desirability of a certain piece in certain grade category. When it comes to grading signs with color match or touch up, you have to look past the color match or touched up areas, and judge the sign as if the color match or touch up is not there, and assign a grade category accordingly. When it comes to signs that been restored, they must be placed in one category and one category only, which is restored. Unlike a sign that has been color matched or touched up in a few areas, a sign that has been professionally restored can never come back to a reasonable state of original condition. When it comes to the pricing a restored sign, an immaculately professional restoration on a sign, that piece should bring approximately 40 - 50 percent of an example in 9.0+ original condition or better, although there may be a few exemptions due to rarity or demand.

8.9 to 8.5 – A grade below perfect condition, with minimal chipping or areas of wear around the outer edge or light chips around mounting holes or grommets that are not over distracting. The field on a piece in this grade should be very clean, but may also allow for one to three small, “Flea Bite” chips, or one non distracting dime size chip on the sign, but not in the field. At least 85 percent or more of the original color & gloss should also be intact, and allow for a minimal amount of scratching or discoloration in small areas. 8.4 to 8.0 – A grade below perfect condition, that allows for more wear & chipping around the outer edge or near the grommet or mounting holes. This sign may also allow for one to two dime size chips on the piece, including the field but not overly distracting. A piece in this grade may also have quarter to half dollar size area of discoloration in the color & gloss, and allow for some light surface scratches in the gloss, as long as its not in the focal point of a piece. This piece should have 80 percent or more of the original color & gloss intact, and not have any distracting areas of the focal point.


A Guide

t o g r a d i n g c o n d i t i o n & a b b r e v i at i o n s 7.9 to 7.5 – A grade that falls below near perfect condition. The pieces in this category will have wear & chipping in multiple areas of the sign. The piece will still have an eye appeal to it, but have areas of distracting wear. There will be two to four dime to quarter size chips present in the field as well as wear along the outer edge, mounting holes or grommets. This piece should have 75 percent or more of the original color & gloss intact, but will allow for more areas of discoloration, such as loss of gloss or surface scratches. 7.4 to 7.0 – A grade that falls below near perfect condition. The pieces in this category will have wear & chipping in multiple areas of the sign. This piece will still have appeal to it, but have heavier areas of distracting wear. There will be three to five dime to quarter size chips present in the field as well as distracting wear along the outer edge, and wear & chipping at the mounting holes or grommets. This piece should still retain 70 percent or more of the original color & gloss intact, but will allow for heavier areas of discoloration, such as heavier areas of gloss loss or surface scratches. 6.9 to 6.0 – A grade that falls below collector grade condition. These pieces will have large areas of wear & chipping throughout the sign. The sign may also have creased areas that have been flattened out. The sign will have larger areas of wear, but still a visible graphic or image. The piece should still retain 60 percent of color & gloss intact, but will allow for large areas of distracting wear and surface scratching. Although the sign has heavy areas of wear, it should still have a decorator type appeal, with a cool weathered look. 5.9 to 5.0 – A grade that falls below collector grade condition. This pieces will have heavy areas of wear, large chips, and may have missing pieces. These pieces should still retain 50 percent of the original image left, but will allow for large areas of distracting wear and surface scratches. Although signs in this category show significant wear, it should still have a decorator type appeal with a cool weathered look. 4.9 and Below – A grade that falls below collector or decorator type condition. These pieces will have large areas of wear, will have heavy damage, and may be missing pieces. These piece have little to nothing left that appeal to the eye of a collector or decorator, and have little to no value. Although they may be heavily damaged or worn, these are great candidates for restoration.

In any such instance, buyer’s remedy, if any, shall be solely against the service certifying the collectible. o Under extremely limited circumstances related solely to authenticity, such as a highly significant cataloging error, a buyer, who did not bid from the floor, may request MORPHY’S to evaluate voiding a sale.

bidder

Terms & Conditions o Lots returned must be completely intact in their original form and undamaged holder, or there will be no credit. Certifications are void and returns are not accepted for any cards removed from their third-party grading holder. o All elements of the MORPHY’S POST-SALE RETURN POLICY apply. There are absolutely no exceptions to this policy. • On any lot presented with a Letter of Authenticity (“LOA”) issued by MORPHY’S o The bidder shall solely rely upon the warranties of the authentication provider issuing the Letter or opinion, or on the warranties of the authentication provider of the bidder’s choice. o Warranty inures only to the original buyer. Buyer may not transfer the rights afforded under the LOA, and it is null and void when Buyer transfers or attempts to transfer the lot. o The LOA warranty is valid from date of the auction in which Buyer was awarded the lot to four (4) years after its purchase. o The LOA warranty is valid as to its attribution to the person or entity described or to the lot’s usage, e.g. game worn. o Claim procedure: o Buyer must contact MORPHY’S within the warranty period, prior to submission of the lot as to his intent to make a claim, receive prior approval, and arrange secure shipment. o Buyer must present with the claim, authoritative written evidence that the lot is not authentic as determined by a known expert in the sports field. o If MORPHY’S concurs that the lot is not as represented, Buyer shall be refunded their purchase price. o If the MORPHY’s denies the claim, the Buyer agrees to the AGREEMENT REGARDING GOVERNING LAW, VENUE, AND LEGAL RIGHTS noted herein. o The LOA does not provide for incidental or consequential damages or other indirect damages. Any lot sold with a certificate of authenticity or other warranty from an entity other than Auctioneer or Morphy’s affiliates is subject to such issuing entity’s rules and such conditions are the sole remedy afforded to buyer. • In the event MORPHY’s cannot deliver the lot, or subsequently it is established that the lot lacks title, provenance, or authenticity, MORPHY’s liability shall be limited to voiding of the sale and refund of purchase price. In no case shall MORPHY’s liability exceed the winning bid on that lot, which bid shall be deemed for all purposes the value of the lot. After one year has elapsed, MORPHY’S maximum liability shall be limited to any buyer’s premium earned on that lot. • Due to changing grading standards over time, differing interpretations, and to possible mishandling of items by subsequent owners, MORPHY’S reserves the right to grade items differently than shown on certificates from any grading service that accompany the items. MORPHY’S also reserves the right to grade items differently than the grades shown in the prior catalog should such items be reconsigned to any future auction. • There is a subjectivity to grading, especially the grading of cards. Every effort is made to verify the condition of each lot as it is described. MORPHY’S accepts items for auction after careful scrutiny by not only ourselves, but, when necessary, by other leading authenticators. We cannot guarantee that every card described by us will in all cases receive exactly the same grade, or even be accepted for grading, from any third-party grading service. Similarly, we cannot guarantee that every card graded by one third-party grading service will in all cases receive exactly the same grade by another third-party grading service. Occasionally a lot description will include the words “we have submitted,” which is intended to be taken literally and give bidders great confidence that MORPHY’S has not “done anything” to the cards to alter or otherwise improve their appearance and

ultimate grade. No warranty, whether expressed or implied, is made with respect to any grade, condition, or other adjectival descriptions, which can and do vary, even among experts. • Large Autograph Group Disclaimer: When dealing with a single individual auction lot containing many items, these lots are offered with the explicit understanding that it is possible that there may be a small percentage which are not authentic. When authenticating large lots, such as a collection of 6,000+ signed 3 x 5 cards, or a set of 700+ signed baseball cards, great care has been taken in the authentication process, with all the greater attention focused on any items representing a concentration of value. It is always possible that on rare occasions a secretarial or stamped signature could be missed here or there. Without this disclaimer, as a practical matter, it would not be possible for MORPY’S to offer such lots at all. All bidders bidding on such lots do so with this understanding. • Abbreviation/Definition/Condition Key: PR — Poor, GD — Good, VG — Very Good, EX — Excellent, NM — Near Mint, MT — Mint. NOTE: If an item has a multiple grade such as VG-EX, then that item falls somewhere in between those two conditions. GOODS MADE FROM OR CONTAINING MATERIALS FROM PROTECTED SPECIES - MORPHY’S does not accept any responsibility or liability for the sale of items containing materials from protected species or for any omission in marking or labeling goods as containing materials from protected species. Such material includes, but is not limited to, ivory from elephants and walruses, tortoise shell, crocodile skin, whalebone, rhinoceros horn, some species of coral and certain woods. Restrictions on the importation, exportation, sale, transfer, and/or possession of goods containing materials from protected species derive from international, federal, and state laws and regulations promulgated thereunder. Laws include, but are not limited to, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna (CITES), the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the Marine Mammals Protection Act (MMPA). States currently restricting trade of protected species include, but are not limited to, California, New York and New Jersey. Prospective buyers are on notice that several countries completely prohibit importation of property made, all or in part, of protected materials. Some countries require special permits, such as a CITES permit, from the relevant regulating authority in the countries of exportation and importation as well. Potential buyers intending to import the property into another country should be familiar with the relevant customs laws and regulations prior to bidding on goods containing material from protected species. Regulations may vary as the U.S. generally prohibits importation of articles containing material(s) from species it has designated endangered or threatened if the articles are less than 100 years old, subject to certain exceptions. It shall be the potential buyer’s sole responsibility to research and satisfy the requirements of any laws and regulations that apply to the import and export of property as described in the aforementioned paragraphs. All buyers agree to comply with any and all domestic and international restrictions on the trade of protected species as a condition of the sale. Please note that the ability to obtain an export license or certificate does not ensure the ability to obtain an import license or certificate in another country, and vice versa. It is the buyer’s responsibility to obtain any export or import licenses and/or certificates as well as any other required documentation. MORPHY’S is not able to assist the buyer in attempting to obtain the appropriate licenses and/or certificates, and there is no assurance that an export license or certificate can be obtained. The inability or delay in (continued...)

PACKING/SHIPPING

• It is the bidder’s responsibility to take shipping, handling, and insurance costs into consideration when bidding on items. • BIDDERS PRESENT AND TAKING ITEMS AFTER AUCTION – Since item liability transfers upon a successful bid, items paid for must be packed, transported and/or removed by the buyer at his/her own risk after the close of the sale. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. If any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the buyer. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • ITEMS NOT PICKED UP THE DAY OF THE SALE – Packaging, shipping, and insurance on all items that MORPHY’S accepts for shipment to locations that can accept shipments will be made available as an added courtesy and at an additional cost. We recommend that you arrange insurance for your items immediately upon becoming the highest bidder. All applicable charges will be applied to the invoice. Shipping will be based on actual costs via FedEx, USPS, or other carriers required based upon the contents of the shipment. Packaging and insurance will vary in cost depending on the items on each invoice. All packages will be shipped with insurance. Standard items packed internally by MORPHY’s will ship seven to fourteen (7-14) business days after payment is received. Oversize and breakable items, which MORPHY’s will indicate on the invoice, will ship based upon the buyer’s arrangement with a 3rd party shipper. MORPHY’s cannot combine standard item shipments with oversize and breakable item shipments. Again, if any employee or agent of MORPHY’S shall pack or transport the merchandise, it is fully at the risk and responsibility and expense of the buyer. MORPHY’S shall not be held liable for any loss or damage that may be caused by the said agent or employee. • SHIPPING TERMS - MORPHY’S will ship items to the buyer at the listed address via FedEx or other carriers, FOB Denver, Pennsylvania or FOB Las Vegas, NV or FOB other auction locations. Any risk of loss or damage to the item(s) during transit via FedEx, or any other carrier, in excess of the insurance provided by or purchased from MORPHY’S, is at the risk of the buyer. Any additional insurance coverage should be purchased by the buyer through the carrier. Buyer releases MORPHY’s from any and all claims for loss or damage to any item during transit and agrees to pay all costs of defense, including attorney’s fees, for any claims brought against MORPHY’S for loss or damage occurring during transit. • INSURANCE - Shipping insurance is automatically added, which you can decline by contacting us and providing a signed waiver of insurance form. Insurance for all 3rd party shipments must be arranged through that carrier. Insurance provided or purchased through MORPHY’s applies only to shipments to the United States and Canada. Buyers must purchase their own insurance for shipments to other countries.

• INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS – MORPHY’S has the capability to ship to international bidders. By law, MORPHY’S cannot, and will not, declare lesser values for any international purchases and all shipments will include the invoice with purchase totals including the buyer’s premium and shipping cost. All international bidders are responsible for knowing their country’s laws on importing items and for paying all customs and duties on the items. • 3RD PARTY SHIPPING OVERSIZE ITEMS – Buyers will need to either pick up the items personally or arrange a 3rd party shipping service for oversize items. As a general guideline, the following will indicate which packages apply, as they are of a certain weight, length, or dimensional size. • Dimensional size is length (the longest measurement) + (height x 2) + (width x 2). For example a 36” x 36” x 12” package = 36 + (36 x2) + (12 x 2) = 132” • USA home shipments must be <70 lbs. and <108” length and <165” dimensional size • USA business shipments must be <150 lbs. and <108” length and <165” dimensional size • International shipments must be <150 lbs. and <108” length and <130” dimensional size • There may be certain shipments that meet these requirements that will still require 3rd party shipping, and we will communicate the reason in those cases. • 3RD PARTY SHIPPING OF BREAKABLE, DELICATE, FRAGILE ITEMS - MORPHY’S reserves the right to choose items and orders that it will pack, ship, and/or insure directly using our shipping department. Those items that MORPHY’S will not ship will require that the buyer either pick up the items personally or arrange a 3rd party shipping service. Examples of items that may apply after determination by our shipping department include but are not limited to: items with neon of any type (working or non-working), all glass display cases of any size; coin-operated, arcade and vending items with fragile parts and/or glass; signs with parts or protrusions beyond the main body of the sign, oversized vases (guideline – larger than fit in a 20” x 20” x 40” box), high value lamps and glass of all sizes, high value artwork including but not limited to paintings, statuary, sculpture, figurines, dioramas, and other intricate items; and items subject to impact by moisture and known handling issues in the supply chain. Under no circumstances will MORPHY’S be responsible for shipping damage to picture frames of any kind. For any buyers who wish to arrange for their own shipping, MORPHY’S must be notified at least seven (7) days prior to arrival of the shipping company name, arrival date and time. Pickup must be scheduled to begin and end within our normal business hours (9am – 4pm weekdays). Buyers must arrange weekend pickups in advance with MORPHY’S staff, and additional charges may be necessary for overtime. All 3rd party shippers must arrive with a copy of the invoice, • STORAGE FEE – MORPHY’S will charge a storage fee of $50 per item per month for any items awaiting pickup for more than 30 days following the invoice date.

The Register porcelain is very rare, in good to very good all-original condition with four extra holes, issued on May 28, 1904 to Charles F. Albrecht of Providence for an Oldsmobile runabout. The 1908 series was only issued to new registrations, so it isn’t missing.

The run includes six large sepia photograph prints of the No. 394 plates in use on the original cars in 1913, 1917, 1940, 1948, 1950 and 1957.
