Books damaged inside their slab

So I got a question, say a book receives damage while inside its slab.  For example I buy a CGC 9.2 and something happens to it, perhaps Shaken Comic Syndrome during shipping, a corner gets bent.  Or the cover comes off the staple.  Or perhaps from one of the threads I read, the staple gets rusty over time from being stored in a fire box. 

Is the grade still a 9.2 when I try to sell it?

Any damage that occurs after a grading opinion is given (by anyone) is not factored into that grade. Obviously.

But, as a buyer how would I know when the damage occurred?  Say there is a rusty staple from years of storage.  Or a folded corner on a 4.5 book I'm looking at on ebay.  Unless I pay for the grader's notes, I would just assume that the rusty staple or folded corner was part of the grade.
