So I scored this in a lot that was poorly posted on eBay. Very cheap and thankfully the book is all there. Wondering what you all think it grades as is and if pressing has any chance of getting this thing near a 6.0 or dare I say higher. I welcome all thoughts!

4.0 as is IMO?

Pressing will probably do a ton of good for this one and bring it into the 6.0+ range.

that's a long crease in the URC, but thin.   I think pressing will get you to the 6-6.5 range

Agreed ... too many cb creases ... 4.0ish now

I appreciate all of the feedback. I know a guy who, from what I have seen, does very good work. I feel confident the back corner can be flattened and look really good, as well as the spine. The longer crease on the FC, I am hoping will be made fainter but I don't have aspirations of it disappearing altogether. 

As is, I have this at a 4.0 which seems to jive with what others have said. If I can bump it to a 5.0 (which I feel is doable) or possibly even a 5.5, I will be happy. All in, I would be under $50 with pressing and shipping so I feel it is a worthwhile move. I may get it graded too simply because it is a book I see going up in coming years and one that I may sell down the road for more personally desired issues.

This needs a few presses... get a good guy that will guarentee 5, 6 presses... Will take a few days but eventually it would get a 4-5.0 if no interior tears

Awesome score btw!

This might need a second press if sent to someone who knows what they are doing. 

To many breaks for a 6.0.

   No chance it goes as high as 6.0, even if you press it a hundred times.  Way too many colour-breaking creases....:sorry:

Thanks for the advice! I think it is worth spending a bit on it. 

I agree with a lot of you, those colour breaking creases are gonna hurt it. Still, I would be happy with a 5.0.

Just save yourself the time and trouble and sell it to me! PM me and sell it to me! I sold one on the boards a while ago and regretted it very soon after. Sell it to me.

I hate to rain on your parade, but I fear there may be too much going on here to get a 6.0, even with a press...  :sorry:

I would have to agree as there is a lot of creasing and colour break creasing. I think best is 4.5

It’s been pressed. I agree the creasing on the front will likely keep it from a 5.0. 4.5 looks like the best to hope for here.
