Hello fellow boardies....

Just look it up in your CGC handbook ! :baiting:  Seriously, saying 'all other defects aside' is not an applicable statement to a CGC grading scenario. The piece missing, along with all the other defects, will be used in forming a grade. Without seeing your book(why not show us a pic?), I would say a piece missing is a serious flaw and will be hammered by CGC.

It depends . . . :grin:

Strictness would say 2.0, but :whistle:

I don't own any books with pieces missing so I can't validate your claim but I'm pretty sure I've seen books with pieces missing graded higher. I stand by my statement that 'it depends', especially without seeing the book. The whole book, and any applicable flaws, must be considered before blindly giving a grade. While the location of the chip should not matter, I think it comes into play. I think a front cover, in your face chip will influence the graders more than a discreet back cover chip. The OP should show us the book, better yet put it in the Please Grade My thread, and see what everybody says.

Actually that was MY statement. :foryou:

Thank you for all the replies. It helped in my decision to return the book since I just bought it. I was on the fence about it
