H!BCoR***
HiBCoR grades a map or print 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 or print in poor condition still grades higher than a common map in very good condition. A grading system can help collectors to set their focus.
The grading is also reflected in the price, and a map or print in fine original colours grades higher than one in modern colours and valuates double in price !
