I see Planet Comics 4 Larson has appeared on C-Link for more than the Church went for, Didn't this book have a purple label at one time ?

Matt Nelson president of CSS

Is he still President of CSS? I thought he was now a chief grader?

It seems the hobby has taken another downturn in ethics...

Trimming, Micro-trimming, Pressing and now another chapter in grade manipulation, extensive resto removal.

Personally I think that if a book receives a blue label after work, when it was previously a PLOD, then that should be noted on the new blue label.

Just some simple black bold letters in Capitals would do the trick;

PRD   previously restored designation.

We could call them PRODS.

Beautiful book. It's now officially a PROD as far as I'm concerned. :banana:

the Church copy is far superior in my opinion, far better colors. I really like PROD by the way.

Why? It's just further damage to a book and is being downgraded for it (presumably). Why would it matter how a book was damaged? Also, this would only be possible with high profile books and mostly only GA at that.

In what universe do unsightly white markings on the spine caused by original paper removal become 'purty' ?   

If it was accidental damage fair enough. If it was me I would eat the CT and live with it, but maybe I'm just too old and outdated now. (shrug)

I believe a brown label slab would appropriately convey how most people feel about these particular sorts of “unrestored” or rerestored? books.

I can be subtle, but my inherent nature demands I calls it how I sees it.

the worst one I have seen is a Fantastic Four #1 that had a color touched conscription crease removed so it has a white scratched off area down the middle of the cover.
