  2. removing the CT -- will get a blue label. BUT - you will also likely get a lower grade. The common method for removing CT - is abrading the area to scratch off the ink. This will leave the book in a condition no better thane before the CT was added - and also probably a little worse off. Depends on the initial grade how far it might fall. Something in the 3-4 range with a couple added scrapes - could be no hit at all. 9.0? --- might drop at least a full point...

  4. Star Stamps???

    You can have one without the other - the inserts are noted on CGC slabs -- but not the star. Likely because the star can be added later- or simply because it is visible like a date stamp. Your books are too old to have any of the inserts - but still cool.
  5. Star Stamps???

    So - the armed forces inserts - the "stamps" look very similar. For books with inserts - the stamp and insert make them more desirable. The common assumption is that the stamps were from books at overseas stations/foreign deployment. The stamps look similar to what I have seen on thee later books. one of the better pages for the inserts - ) by the boardie mentioned above) http://www.awe4one.com/NDS-MJ Inserts/Insert webpage.html
