Hello everybody.

Cards on the table time. I only pick up books from time to time now, and I have only one title I am focused on. I don't think I will ever complete it, for reasons I will not bore you with. 

I really love these books and have put a couple up before but they've proved too costly for people to buy. I do really want to keep them however such are my circumstances at present that I have to get some funds from somewhere, and these books are my only saleable assets with any real value. No, I don't own a car or a house or any big material possessions, just various collectibles I've gathered over the years, models, books, all sorts of bits and pieces, but obviously they cannot be sold here.

So now I am taking the unprecedented step of offering these six books for exactly what I paid. Perhaps you may think I have overpaid, I don't know, but the fact remains the sale price is not one cent over what I have in the book. That includes the shipping I paid and in two cases CGC fees. So I am offering them at break even prices. Some of these I bought quite recently but things have gone a bit pear shaped since, you literally never know what's around the corner.

Ideally I would like to sell them all or none at all. I hope maybe you guys can help out by buying one or two, but if not, I'll still have some pretty great books on my hands, so there's that. :foryou:

Here are the guidelines:

I will only charge $15 toward the shipping regardless if you take more than one slab. This will inc. signed for/insured & tracked on the slabs

So $15 for one or more slabs. $7 for one or more raw. 

Within the UK it will be one price of £5 

I will accept returns within 7 days of receipt. I will cover return postage up to what I paid. I've never had anyone returning anything in 5 years, and I've made hundreds of sales when I was in happier times. 

Payment would be appreciated within 24 hours. Payment is by Paypal only.

:takeit: in the thread as usual trumps any pm stuff, but I will honour privacy in pms.

THE BOOKS:

All are the Title, HAUNTED THRILLS. There are 2 raw and 4 slabs.

Books in a few...

HAUNTED THRILLS #9

I bought this book originally as a 1.8. I think the grade IMO was nearer to a 1.5 due to the piece missing from the back cover. I graded this recently with CGC and as you know, they now have a somewhat different interpretation of complete and incomplete. They have classed this as INCOMPLETE because of the back cover and hit it with the lowest grade, which I think is really harsh. It looks beautiful in the new case.

I have included the pics pre grading for you.

CGC 0.5 Pages are COW

What I have in it.  $341   REDUCTION NOW $275

Finally HAUNTED THRILLS #5

I bought this book originally as a 0.5. I've always loved this book. Notwithstanding the problem on the right side, it is beautiful. CGC gave it an increase but again classed it as incomplete, although it is easy to read and enjoy the book despite the problem with the first two pages.

Possibly the nicest 1.0 you will see, it does look very nice in the new cgc case.

I have included the pics pre grading for you.

CGC 1.0 Pages are OWW

What I have in it.  $266    REDUCTION NOW $240

Wow, I really agree. VERY hard to understand why this isn't a 1.0 at absolute worst.
