Thanks, but in truth I've owned this copy for a while and just posted it now when seeing this thread get resurrected.

:o That book is pure insanity, well done! And it also seems to disprove the notion some have that "unwitnessed" signatures on the cover result in an automatic green label. (thumbs u

Nice 'double quote' on the leading edge - not easy to come by (thumbs u

TOS #39 is incredibly hard to come by with the full double quote visible. I believe this is the first book we've seen in this thread with the double quote... Nice book. (thumbs

You'll only see the double quotes on the right edge when the cover has a front-to-back miswrap.

There a few nice "double quote" books - check out bomber-bob's and podboy66 for a couple of good ones. :cool:

In general it appears to be a poorly cut/wrapped book across the board. On some books like mine double quotes are evident AND the full sideboard "Who" starburst can be seen, and in some books there is single quote (or none) and the "Who?" starburst wraps slightly around the back. I would have to think the book was intended for the double quotes to appear but quality control in the wrap/cutting department was having an off week doh!

Before:

once upon a time this was an old label CGC 6.0 but i cracked it open, read it a few times and put it in my collection. Just got it back from CGC. I included the old label with the submission but they still gave it a different grade. I always thought it looked very nice for grade. This book has never been pressed.

 

After:

Sadly i am out of the club. Just came down out of the stratoshere to sell the book at a nice price on the link. Although a surge is possible before the next avengers movie the timing was right for me. Someday I hope to own a nice copy again.
