I have not sold here before, but I have sold 20's/30's pulps on ebay among many other things with this account https://www.ebay.com/usr/dogfooddog   the feedback about the pulp sales may be informative, and is the best pertinent reference I can supply.

 

rules - 

with an accepted offer, timestamp is the deciding factor, whether  in thread or PM.  I may take lower offers at the time time/price priority system.

Payment is paypal or bank wire to a US bank.

Shipping within the US is free (registered mail), international I will provide a quote upon request.  I will not ship where delivery confirmation is not available.

No probation list or HOS members allowed.

Raw books must be returned in their same condition and you must let me know within 7 days of receipt of the book  that you are sending it back and why.

I will run this auction until this Thursday, January 31st.

 

Price is $5000.

 

Higher-res scans  and photos (the  originals of these) available on demand, just let me know where to send them.  Note that the slice (about 1cm long) on right back cover penetrates the cover and into the 2nd page from the back.  I cannot detect indentation in the 3rd page from back, but I would  assume there is a bit of a pressure mark.  It looks like some of the pencil on the back was erased at some point, or was very faint to begin with, and additional  penciling is present.

 

If you are interested, let me know what additional images you need.

regarding any restoration - - to my knowledge, none.  I haven't seen the kind of touch-up that would be an obvious tell (see my strange tales 110 thread), but I am also not qualified to catch subtle stuff.  I bought this on ebay sometime likely late 90s but maybe 2000-2002 so any restoration prior to that would be using methods common 20+ years ago.

After review and some very comprehensive advise in PM, I am pulling this sale (unsold) and sending off to CGC for  grading.

Factors leading to this decision include 1) my lack of standing/credibility on this board 2) lack of standing and competence to comprehensively detect or deny any restoration and 3) the ever-present nightmare of a return situation, where a book is returned with additional damage from the buyer handling.

That will facilitate your sale enormously, and provide potential buyers a relatively solid baseline for evaluating your asking price (and you as well; you may discover that you are over or under charging).

Best of luck with your sale, that's a great looking copy!

Best of luck with the submission and subsequent sale!

If you're submitting to CGC, do they have ways to gently remove some or all of the pencil marks without that being considered restoration?
