This is a qualified copy. I acquired the cover from a boardie and I just recently found a coverless copy on eBay. 

Im thinking about sending it to cgc for presentation purposes and I'm wondering what qualified grade I might expect if I pop the coverless book into the cover. Any ideas?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

apparent 4.0 but possibly brittle edges to interior pages :eyeroll: meaning downgrade to app. 1.5?

Thanks for the input! So are you saying it would come back with a purple label? What keeps it from being green? I have essentially zero experience with restored, or conserved comics. It's  quite a learning curve and I'm trying to learn as much as possible.

To clarify, it should be Green married label. My main concern is that if Cgc designates interior with brittle edges, the Green grade would be lower than 2.0 even though the covers are sharp.

Cover is real nice, and the artwork fantastic. A Whiz 4 cover that nice? A rusting, brittle interior? I wouldn't let them even touch one another. Set a time frame, say a year. I'm sure you'll find a bargain on a sound, coverless #4. Then you send cover and interior out to a preacher to be professionally, properly married, you submit the finished product and you'll have either a beautiful addition to your collection, or a piece to sell that will bring more than the expense incurred, I'm sure, as we'll be talking qualified FN or better without another else done other than attaching the cover.

I agree. I've been searching for a coverless copy for months and I finally found the one above, but it just doesn't match. I'll just have to continue the search! Once I do find a better coverless copy, who is a good company to send it to to be married? What is the cost of something like that? @James J Johnson

Not much expense, and I favor Classics Conservatory as being one of the best in the biz and affordably reasonable. There's a member here also. I've seen a few posts of his, showing some of his work, and it's top notch. I can't remember his forum ID but I do know that he worked with Matt. He's great too! I'm sure another member will guide you to him.

I agree with this.

I think the member's name was Joey, possibly Joey Post or something to that effect. I remember seeing examples of his leaf casting entire new sections of cover, with major new areas that were indistinguishable from the vintage paper and thinking, "That's not restoration, that's magic. He must have used a magic wand to do that". It was the best I've ever seen, bar none. :bigsmile:

      February 23-24: Warren, MI at the Macomb Community College!
      This is a GREAT show that I have attended for years.  It is a top 3 show in the state of Michigan and while certainly not as big as Motor City, it has more of an "old school" feel with a higher percentage of Comic Vendors.  This will be my first time selling at it, and I know @catrick339 and @Nick's Comics will both also be setup there too.  I have done a lot of business with both guys over the years so please check out their booths as well, great books, great prices, and slightly above average Hawaiian shirts (catrick only).
      Jim Steranko, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard and many more comic book and pop culture creators and celebrities will be in attendance. 
      @Rich_Henn will be onsite as well for signatures.
      There are deals to be had at this show, hope some boardies can attend.
