Working with Grading, Authentication, and Appraisal

Sometimes the proper pricing for an item can be determined by means other than looking at completed auctions. Naturally, if you're selling new merchandise, you can compare your pricing to that of a typical retail store. And if you're selling certain collectible items, there are established price guides available to determine both the condition and the market value of your item.

Understanding Grading

The process of setting a market value based on age and condition is called grading. Collectors use these grading scales to help evaluate and price items within a category. If you know the grade of your item, not only can you better determine the ideal selling price, you can also include the grade in the item's title or description, and thus more accurately describe the item to potential bidders.
