  1. Actually guys I would also like if you could, your opinions on how much the non colour breaking bend (from storage without a backing board....DUH) by the spine lowers the grade.
  2. Thanks very much for ALL the replies guys. Yes it was sending to USA from across the pond in postage and pressing costs that I was taking into consideration depending on grade potential. Itโ€™s been in my collection for over 40 years so cost of book would have been minimal so thatโ€™s a plus factor. Cheers ๐Ÿ‘
  3. I would be delighted with that high a grade but with wear as you say, spine ticks, some corners etc I would say less ๐Ÿ˜ข
  4. Hi all Iโ€™m trying to decide whether or not to c&p due to condition or just sell raw. All advice much appreciated.
  5. Just realised the staples are odd, they are not seen from the outside cover so how is the cover held on ? and will this effect the grade
  6. Good spot it does look like it
  7. Thanks in advance for all and any comments ๐Ÿ‘
  8. Hi all How much would the bend/curl(caused by incorrect storage, i.e. stacked with no backing board) by the spine affect a grade. The bend/crease is non colour breaking and I would assume a press would get rid of it quite easily...or am I wrong
  9. Absolutely correct I suppose I'm just a tad sentimental (not good I know) about books that I purchased soooooo many years ago ๐Ÿ‘
  10. Iโ€™m pretty sure its just discoloration (sorry I should have mentioned) which hopefully a clean will remove
  11. With a clean and press what do you think this may achieve Nice spine I cant see any ticks but bottom left corner shows some wear Lovely and clean in side as never been read.
