  1. Thanks for all the replies. I came back a 6!
  2. Thanks, consensus seems to be 5-6, which I would be happy with. I wasnt sure that because it's a GA comic they might be slightly more relaxed about giving a higher grade!
  3. Thanks. Its already had a clean and press (second group of photos). I think they did a great job!
  4. Great thanks. I'm told GA comics are graded a bit more relaxed compared to newer comics so fingers crossed.
  5. I've had it pressed and thought I'd show the results.
  6. Thanks. I'm in the UK so might be a bit difficult - imagine your in the USA! I've sent to to a comic guy who reassures me its not mold! Phew...
  7. I'm submitting my tec 233 for grading. I've noticed that someone has attempted to rub if some pencil removing some gloss/colour. Would be considered restoration? Or are they more tolerant if the more aged books? Many thanks
  8. I've used a dry q tip and not much change. I'm not sure how confident I am using any chemicals on it. I think I'd have to get someone to do it for me. But if I'm honest, I just dont want it to spread throughout the comic or to my other comics. I can live with it there, the book otherwise presents really well
  9. Great I'll give that a try. Thank you for the replies, will let you know how it goes...
  10. I assume theres no way to know for sure or to treat it. If it was and I got it encapsulated would that protect it and most of all my other comics? Thanks
  11. Also concerned about the comics longevity if it is mould
  12. Trying to decide if this is mould... Also has an interesting staple defect. What you think? Will either affect grade?
  13. Just recieved it and noted this - wasnt made aware of... How would this affect grade?
  14. Your right sorry! Thank you. I'm hoping for a 5. Will definitely get it cleaned and pressed first
  15. Great thank you for your opinion, very much appreciated!
  16. Ok so looking around a 4.5ish then. Will a clean and press do much?
  17. Really that high? I'll get it cleaned and pressed but didn't think it would get that sort of grade.
  18. Hey everyone, accidentally posted this before in the wrong thread . I'd much appreciate your help on estimate of grade please - I'd be grateful for any help. I'm guessing 4-5.5 but I'm no expert and I'm trying to get my eye in. I've done the best I can at looking out for resto but I cant see anything obvious (I know it's pretty much impossible without the book in front of you - even then can be impossible).
  19. Just realised this is in the wrong thread and not sure how to delete..

  21. Thank you for answering. Will it matter that it’s actually 2 tears?
