Your book looks like it was the top book on a stack that was held together by a piece of twine

I prefer to think of that as a "kid folded it up in back pocket" crease...

I wish I was in this club.  If I could only have convinced my dad to part with $1K for a solid vf copy back in 1982, I would be!

I remember when this was first found.   Friend of Bob Kane's had folded it to keep it in a safe deposit box.

Really??? That is crazy!  LOL....I'd like to just take a black magic marker and red...to fill in...would that little amount qualify for a Blue label with words "slight color touch up." :roflmao:
I saw a Det. 27 marked that way....I was curious...as the Blue label vs Purple value was probably $150,000 difference!  Guess who ya know ;)

A listened in on a conversation once at a booth that was apparently continuing an intense discussion online regarding a book with a pen mark that looked like it could have been either a careless attempt at color touch or somebody dropped a pen on the book.  Same pen mark, either way, but tens of thousands of difference in value rode on the determination of what the book's former owner was thinking when it occurred.
