What is PENS Evaluation?
Physical Evaluation Numbering System was developed by hobbiests to encourage a unified system when describing an items originality and use. It is healthy for the industry to encourage the public to get involved with understanding what they are buying. We need to take control of our purchases and start engaging in evaluations ourselves. Certainly, it is useful when we have knowledgeable people evaluating game use, provenance, and originality of an item. There is no way to take out “opinions” of this type authentication process nor to erase personal bias. PENS has come up with a numbering system that aids the buyer in determining whether or not they want to purchase the item themselves based on the unified numbering system eliminating bias and recording facts as seen by the Evaluator. Collectors can use this guide, or a professional Evaluator will be assigned to assist in filling out the guide.
