Prop Store Condition Spectrum

Prop Store assesses props and costumes with the following condition scale. Listed with each grade an explanation of typical attributes associated with it. Please note that film props and costumes regularly sustain wear and tear in the course of normal production usage. Unlike many other collecting fields, this is commonly seen as a positive. Prop Store provides extensive photography of all auction lots offered—please review the photo sets carefully for the best understanding of a lot’s condition.
