After having my eyes bleed from reading way too long on a mostly negative thread on Tman last night, I'm trying to figure out a little matrix of "value" in grading (t least for my coons).

My question is what would you put higher in value, SDB or I*??

Thanks. I'll share later when I have it finished and after some errands in town.

Definitely the I grade. Sdb is only a slight step up from II.

SDB are a I quality hide, only with a little too much damage to be graded as a I. For reference an SDA is a sel quality hide only with too much damage to be considered sel.

Gotta change my comment I was incorrect. SDA use to be slight damage GD, which was sel and I quality hidea. SDB are I-II quality skins, or sel and I quality skins that are severely damaged. They also use to do a slight damage poor which were II quality skins, or I-II quality hides that are severely damaged, but I don't think they use the poor anymore (except on full damaged/section III pelts).
