  1. 8.0 - but a good press could bump it up a bit.
  2. Is that line by the spine on the back cover a pencil mark? Or crease? A dry clean may remove a pencil. Assuming it's a crease I'm at 8.0 / 8.5
  3. That's a really beautiful book. I wouldn't be shocked by a 9.0. If the dust shadow brings it down to VF+ range, it will be about the prettiest 8.5 you could buy.
  4. 2.5 For comparison, here is my 2.0. I think yours is similar, but a little nicer. Nicer spine, cleaner presentation. (Not the best picture, but all I currently have on my phone)
  5. No, I don't either. I don't have a big issue with reversing restoration. I take issue with badly scraping books or destroying the edges to conceal trimming. If reversing restoration creates greater damage to the book, I'm not a fan. I also think any work that has been done should be disclosed to potential buyers. If I'm spending 4, 5 or 6 figures on a book, I would want to know what's been done to it. That's what I think CGC should communicate, either with a label change or through graders notes. I personally would buy a book like this superman. It presents beautifully. But I would want to know it was restored and that restoration was reversed. Disclosure - I'm saying I would buy that superman hypothetical. As I heard so many times in high school, it's out of my league.
