An Action Comics #1 and a Detective Comics #27 are the first two books to be graded under CGC's new restoration scale. CGC agreed to launch these two books before the July 1 official start date.
As noted in an earlier article, CGC has expanded its restoration scale to help collectors understand what was done to their book. The following is a list of conservation and restoration repairs, materials used for these repairs, and the new CGC restoration scale:
Materials Used for Conservation Repairs:
Materials Used for Restoration Repairs:
Quality (Aesthetic) Scale – (Determined by materials used and visual quality of work)
Quantity Scale – (Determined primarily by extent of piece fill and color touch)
Featured below are the above mentioned books and the certification details. The summary of the graders notes lists every restoration technique used, the quantity and quality grade assigned for each, and its location on the book.
Action Comics #1
Detective Comics #27
In the near future, this information will be added to the CGC website.
