Die Cast Condition Grades
 


Grading die-cast cars, or any old toy or collectible, is a difficult task.  Some collector use a scale that ranges from mint to good other speak of a range from C10 (mint) to C1 (good).  These are the two ranges and how they compare with an example. 

Range Description Example
MINT (m) C10 As it came out of the package, not played with! hot wheels redline cord magenta.jpg (27853 bytes)
NEAR MINT TO MINT (nm-m) C9 Small pin-prick in the paint, slightly tarnished base, wheels or decal hot wheels redline magenta silhouette.jpg (14179 bytes)
NEAR MINT (nm) C8 Barely noticeable scratch, wear, or crooked decal (tampo) hot wheels redline s'cool bus.jpg (38698 bytes)
EXCELLENT TO NEAR MINT (e-nm) C7 More wear than above with possible lightly tarnished base hot wheels redline blue hot heap.jpg (14150 bytes)
EXCELLENT (e) C6 Small scratches, discolorations in paint, slight wheel wears hot wheels redline brown mustang.jpg (16967 bytes)
FINE (fn) C5 Dark patches in paint (toning), tarnished base, scratches in paint redline hot wheels king kuda lt blue.jpg (43976 bytes)
VERY GOOD TO FINE (vg-fn) C4 Missing patches of paint, very noticeable scratches hot wheels redline aqua barracuda.jpg (15654 bytes)
VERY GOOD (vg) C3 Heavy scratches and toning, very heavy tarnish on base hot wheels redline spoilers boss hoss brown.jpg (25340 bytes)
GOOD TO VERY GOOD (g-vg) C2 Missing minor parts, paint & cracked plastic windshield hot wheels redlines mercedes-benz c-111 magenta.jpg (21695 bytes)
GOOD (g) (C-1) Missing minor parts, major paint & badly scratched plastic windshield, repainted (nice) hot wheels redline spoilers evil weevil green.jpg (17523 bytes)
"Beater" Missing major parts, paint & cracked plastic windshield, repainted (bad) hwrcord.jpg (14371 bytes)

These are my opinion and not to be used for any other uses.

If you have a collection of old redline Hot Wheels that is just gathering dust in the attic, I can put them in good homes.  Let your memories carry on.  Please e-mail me @ toys@mysite4u.com if you want to talk about it.
