  1. I dabble in selling slabs. Whenever I move one I usually throw another comic in just to say thank you. It’s a feel good thing for the buyer and the seller.
  2. 4.0 - 4.5 with a press. Congrats your father left you one of the most coveted books in the hobby.
  3. I scanned though all the excellent advice and my advice would be the same as the majority, clean, press and grade the book for safe keeping. The one thing I might add that I didn’t see is if the book is graded and you choose to not sell in the event your book is passed on to your heirs they would likely appreciate the significance of the book easily. your mom was going to throw it way. If it was in a CGC case I bet the thought never crosses her mind. I’ve lost both my parents it’s tough, my condolences.
  4. That was my thought maybe I missed a stain somewhere. I’m likely going to break it out and have a close look. I feel like regardless of the outcome I learned something here.
  5. Hello, First I didn’t know where to post this so I thought the newbie section might be my best choice. I’ve been grading books through CGC for about 10 years. I’ve had books come back better than I anticipated and books that didn’t grade out quite what where I thought they were. However I just had a book come back that from my perspective the grade isn’t even close to representing the book correctly. it’s a modern book thats near flawless as far as I can tell, yet CGC is calling it very fine. Usually when I disagree with a grade grader notes point me in the right direct
  6. Don’t ask me why but I seem to have acquired numerous copies over the years of this book.
  7. It’s been a few years since I posted it, but I could tell the story of how I snagged a bag and boarded 98 for a dollar, which turned into this.
  8. My favourite copper age book currently in the collection.
