Should I slab and/or press Hawkman #4?

I was wondering whether or not I should possibly get his book slabbed/pressed?

Would pressing possibly increase the grade?

Does not look like it needs to be pressed. Not even sure I would spend the money to slab this book. It looks to be about F/F+

I don't see any obvious pressable defects. I would also be concerned that the ink on the stamp would smear even more than it is already. It's possible, this already was pressed. I do think this book is worth slabbing .

I'd pass on the press but slab it. Its probably got a selling value of between $400 and $500 in the 6.0 range which is about what the book looks like from the spine stress alone.

You didn't mention whether you intend to sell the book or keep it in your collection.  For me, comics are for collecting and slabs are for selling.

Thanks everyone!

Namisgr, at the moment I may keep it but sell it in the future ~
