Toy Grading Terminology Australia
Toy Grading Terminology Australia, The Asset Valuations Group is specific and precise.
The Asset Valuations Group, help grade different types of vintage toys. We understand all toys from different eras have different value, therefore each of our vintage toy valuations is specific and precise.
Toy grading terminology in Australia is aligned in accordance with The Australian Memorabilia Valuers (AMV). The Australian Memorabilia Valuers use specific coding & terminology for when they grade, value and certify the authenticity of an item in Australia.
The coding is as follows:
“L” – This stands for Loose. This is when an item is not in/out it’s original packaging. Items are usually complete with all its original parts unless it has been noted.
“MOC” – This stands for Mint ON Card. The item/figure is sealed on the original card with the original bubble. This relates mainly to toys being packaged.
“MIB” – This stands for Mint IN Box. The item is near mint (C9-10), with its inner packing. This relates mainly to certifying Funko Pop Vinyls.
“MISB” – This stands for Mint IN Sealed Box. The box is factory sealed and has not been opened ever.
“WOB” – This stands for With Original Box. The asset is complete in near mint condition (C9). The box has been opened, but the item is mint.
Please note that if an item cannot be coded correctly, The AMV will use two or more of the above to do so.
In the next paragraph, The AMV will discuss The Toy Grading Scale. This scale is used to determine the condition of the toy, and give it a rating ranging from AMV 5 to AMV 10.
