H!BCoR***
HiBCoR grades a map in a scale of 1 to 10. This valuation is based by the combination of Historical significance, Beauty, Condition and Rarity. As a result an extremely rare map in poor condition still grades higher than a common map in very good condition.A grading system can help the starting collector to set his focus.
The grading is also reflected in the price, and a map in fine original colors grades higher than one in modern colors and valuates double in price !
