Our Grading System
From our humble beginning of 25 photos, the Silverbanks Pictures archive has since grown to nearly 10,000 images. Eventually we hope to license these images for editorial use but, in the meantime, feel free to take a peek at what we have available to purchase through our eBay store.

Our collection features . . . . . .
POOR ( P; 1 ) - There may be numerous creases or fold lines in the photo. There may also be stains, holes, tears or major trimming.

FAIR ( F; 2-3 ) - Not as bad as poor condition, but still showing a lot of wear. These photos will usually have a tear, pin holes or extreme yellowing.

GOOD ( G; 4-6 ) - A photo in good condition but showing its age. It may have staple marks, pin holes, creases or a stain.

VERY GOOD ( VG; 7 ) - Overall very good condition. There may be just one or two flaws - a small crease, bumped corner or a small stain.

EXCELLENT ( E; 8-9 ) - A photo that is excellent in every way. There may be a light scratch or crease or a tiny bump.

NEAR MINT ( NM; 10 ) - This is top grade. We rarely use the term "mint" since even photos that came fresh off the press probably have some inconsistancies.
