About the AFA Grading

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.

AFA 3-Tier Grading Scale

Description AFA Grade Abbreviation
Gem Mint 100 GEM MT
Mint 95 MINT
Near Mint/Mint 90 NM/MT


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.

Near Mint Plus 85 NM+
Near Mint 80 NM
Excellent Plus/Near Mint 75 EX+/NM
  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 term 'case fresh' is certainly justifiable as the average figure pulled from a sealed case will grade an 85 due to small flaws which occur when the figures are packaged or shipped in the case. 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. 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.

AFA Modern Grading Scale

The Modern grading scale is specifically designed to assess the condition of toys produced from 1995 to the present year. This scale serves to better assess miniscule flaws which can differentiate two identical items which are fresh from a case or the store shelves, by including more grade options at the upper end of the grading scale. The Modern scale is based on a 10 point system with additional grade options above 9.0. Case fresh modern items tend to most frequently receive the grades of 8.5 and higher, so by including additional high grade options for thegraders to choose from, this scale has proven to be quite effective in better evaluating the condition of items produced in the modern era.
