Are the 2 white lines on the right edge of the fc color touch removal or just white paint?  Beautiful book, either way.  GLWTS!

The bottom 2 lines in the right hand corner are definitely tears of some sort. 

Offers welcome.

For what it's worth, I believe that I know this book...if it's the one I think it is, it used to be in a restored 7.5 holder (color touch). I believe that a previous owner had the color touch removed, resulting in the damage that you see (both the line on the guy's shirt, and the bottom left corner damage). That is, to remove the color touch, paper had to be essentially removed/routed out...leaving you with the 6.0 unrestored book...and a nice looking one, at that!  2c
