Our grading service allows you to determine the originality and the condition of your object in order to authenticate it.
A rigorous grading process
Our experts follow a rigorous set of procedures and manipulations to ensure that each item is meticulously and impartially inspected.
Each object is analyzed in more than 20 steps by our experts and they make sure that it is authentic and not counterfeit. After the analysis, they assign a note to the object on a scale of 10.
At Canadian Acrylic Display, at least two experienced grading professionals participate in the analysis of each object. In some cases, a third expert may be involved in the process.
Certified items are then carefully placed and sealed inside our Canadian-designed acrylic cases that provide protection against ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Our cases help preserve the current condition of the object for years to come.
We have also developed a new method for sealing our boxes. In addition to being glued on 3 sides, we affix a protective sticker on the back to prevent air from entering and damaging the object with glue residue that often overflows inside.
Report and certification (or Grading)
The client receives a report of the work done and containing the comments on the analyzed points. He can see each of the defects or signs of deterioration. As the object is now sealed in an acrylic case, the deterioration process is interrupted.
A serial number and a hologram are assigned to each certified piece. They are logged for life in a database which also contains a description of the object, the valuation notes of the experts, a barcode and the hologram attesting to the authenticity of the object. This information can be very useful in case of loss or theft.
Certification provides instant added value to a collectible item and increases buyer confidence.
