Grading is a way to review and decide on the physical condition of a banknote, coin or stamp. alphaNumis current provide grading service for banknotes only.
The condition of a banknote can be classified from Poor (very worn out) to Uncirculated (perfect condition).

Here at alphaNumis, we follow the International Banknote Society's (IBNS) grading scale.
