  1. I'm assuming then if graded it would get a restored label?
  2. I completely agree with what your saying something seems off. The cover does have some sort of gloss to looks like. As well the book appears ti have rust migration on the pages or some staining from rusted staples but yet the staples are not rusted? It seems very weird...
  3. I believe taping back the pages would be considered restoration and I want to make sure it gets a blue label so I wouldn't want to do that.
  4. Not sure if thats a terrible crease on the front cover to if it was a tear and someone tried to glue it back I really don't know what to make of it... pages 12-14 are detached and the book has heavy spine split. Thank you!
  5. Thank you in advance! side not I'm not sure what the max grade is that a book can get with some tape on it so if any of you know please let me know! small piece of tape on bottom back of the book.
  6. Not exactly sure what all that staining on the spine is but hopefully its not glue of some sort as id like this to be a blue label. But let me know what you think! Thanks!
  7. The book overall to me seems to be in about 4-5 condition. But I am not sure how much the rust will affect the grade. Please let me know your thoughts and thank you in advance!
  8. Thanks! so your saying books with minimal rust like this can be a 4.0 but if you have a lot of rust then the best is like a 3 right?
  9. I will upload a picture of the rust so you can tell me what you think
  10. Hey guys the book has rust on the staples so it can't be higher than a 3... anyway but if you look at the face on the book it appears someone traced it? ill upload a picture of a book I have with no tracing vs the traced book. I'm not sure how tracing with a pen or marker affects a grade so if you can let me know that would be great thank you.
  11. Here she is, unfortunately has about a 5 inch non breaking color crease on cover. Maybe a press could remove it? Anyway thanks in advance!
  12. Here she is! Overall very nice looking book. Only concern is that the staples appear to have a small amount of rust on the staples. I know if staples have rust highest a book can get is a 3.0 but is this enough rust to do that to this book? It would be a shame since its such a nice copy. Anyway thanks in advance!
