Yeah, I don't know, either. I just googled "Pigen" and then said, "No, I DON'T mean 'pigeon'." :)

I just slabbed my longtime raw, and it came back as a 6.0. A great mate to my 8.5. I love the cover.

Here's my copy. I feel it's got tons of eye appeal and frankly, I thought it was undergraded in 2008. Might re-submit some day after the hundreds of other books I'd like to get graded. :sorry:

Great copy. Unless the back cover was gnawed by wolves or something, definitely a strong candidate for resubmission. :)

I was told I did submit it during a "very tight grading" period, so hm I will get it out later today and look it over again. I have a back scan and it also looks great. (I need to re-scan it so the picture doesn't cut off the bottom edge.)

So yes, I am definitely thinking about re-subbing.

Could be something in the interior pages. I had a book that was a solid 8.0, maybe 8.5 come back a 6.0 because there is a tape stain on one page.

I have considered that. I wanted to get the notes but back in 2008 it would have been a PITA to get those. Still not crazy about the idea of being charged for that.

Here's yet another VGish copy for me... new one from ebay. A couple of interior pages have a corner piece missing, but the cover looks attractive... I really liked the eye appeal for the price.
