which book would you rather have-- the one that has been heavily restored (fake cover or replaced inner wraps etc- Frankenbook) or the complete yet coverless version? (assuming same book-- action 1 or tec 27)

I'm thinking having one that is all original is preferable -- adding that facsimile cover and slabbing it seems to hide to real book which is what you are buying. Then again-- I can't imagine many collectors who want these as keepers would be keeping this book inside the slab very long. If you were simply looking at it as a conversation piece or potential flip down the line-- yeah, keep it in the slab.

But for me-- I would rather see the original item through the slab than putting a fake cover on it. No correct answer here-- just throwing out my opinion.

I would want that Action 1 instead.  No Frankenbook
