I doubt that I could give a whole grade on this because each piece is of a different quality.
The binoculars are my favorite part; I have a second pair for Erica. They are very realistic and made with metal accents and a pleather strap. A+
The bird cards are fairly realisitc except they say American Girl on them. However, they do make a nice display and would work with her summer sets. A.
The coat: Personally, I really like it. It looks more Victorian than Edwardian to me, but I'm not too much of an expert on that count. The material is kind of weird but the trims are beautiful. I like that it can be worn in the same season as the Travel Duster so that Nellie or Erica can wear a coat along with Samantha. B+
The hat: I hate it. I loathe and despise it. It is cheap and totally innacurate in material. The material is very plasticy taffetta and the pretty ribbons and lace just make the 'fabric' look uglier. Neither Erica nor Samantha would be caught dead in it. I may sell this part of the outfit. F-
