Hi All,

Any thoughts on this JIM #83 before I send to CGC?  4.0?  maybe a touch higher?

Thanks

Warren

Structurally a 4.5/5.0. Fade brings it down to a 4.0. Nice book

4.0-4.5   the staple areas hurt it on the back as does the wrap. . I do wish I had it though.

I'd say 4.0. Too bad about the fade, but it looks like a solid copy.

I'm gonna say 4.0   after careful consideration

This. And this is a perfect example of why you need multiple graders, multiple findings like the CGC employs to finalize a grade.

This was a fast grading for me. In the time it took me to page down through the first post, I thought, "4.5". I've seen so many books just like this one graded 4.5 and when I paged down to see the first estimate, ComicShark's 4.5, I thought, "Yep, I'm in the zone", because a defect like fade can go either way depending on the whole. Then I reached the point where Ahsoka opined, "4.0", and I paged back up for another look, "what did he see to drop this a tick from what most might conclude is an obvious 4.5?". I looked more carefully and there may be more to the accumulation of defects than the eye readily sees, when examined more closely, and sure enough, beyond the fade, beyond the accumulation of flaws easily seen, there are more you really have to peer at to see and fathom to what degree they affect the whole. I think Ahsoka's 4.0 and anybody else who agrees with that is right on the money. Grading is really a team effort, input and onservation are key and not everybody can see everything. That's what makes this section of the forum so great and probably the best learning tool on the net for grading.
