  1. They graded this a 9.0 and the 476 an 8.0. This 9.0 looks worse than the 8.0... any ideas on how they could have graded these two as they did?
  2. Looking at this book and the 475 that they graded a 9.0, This book looks better on both sides. Not sure how they graded it at 8.0.
  3. Thanks! Just going through the huge collection of my dad's that I grabbed after he passed. These were in several boxes in a shed.
  4. Still waiting on it. USPS certified mail is slow. UPS would have been here within 2 days after shipping.
  5. Do you think that crease may have a shot at being pressed out? You have to get up close to even see it. It somewhat breaks color... this is one of those Iffish press books from my perspective.
  6. Looking for thoughts on the current grade and if the defects could be pressed out for a higher grade
  7. Looking for thoughts on the current grade and what might be realistic after a press.

  13. Not a defect. It's distributors ink. Pretty common on newsstand comics back in the day.
  14. Thing is some people collect comics for their covers and not the art/story inside. That is what makes certain books more valuable than they otherwise would be.
  15. I doubt they will. Roughly 1,000 copies were printed.
