Extra staples. Would this book get a grade bump

Could the extra staples be removed and a grade bump received? This book presents very well.  

Any advice would be appreciated 

I will go pull grader notes and update 

 

I was told by the person I bought the boom from the extra staples are not actually performing a function other than looks. I assume the other ones must be rusty. 

Thanks in advance 

Marcus

I would sell it as-is. It looks amazing, and staple removal could potentially do more harm than good.

You're gonna make about $3500 or so on this now, based on recent sales.

If it gets to 5.5, maybe you get another $1000. But it'll cost you a few hundred to get it CCS-ed and CGC-ed, plus a month's time... then you're into summer, where sales lag a bit.

Plus... wouldn't the holes left by the staples be a negative?

If you could go from a 5.0 to a 5.5 or 6.0 GUARANTEED... then heck, yeah.

But accounting for the risk... I'd sell it the way it is. JMHO. Good luck with whatever you decide! :)

Yes, the extra staple holes would still be there, and it's hard to see them as a positive...

Good luck!  :wishluck:

This. 
You can have extra staples. Or you can remove the extra staples and have six tiny holes through the entire book.  99.9% of the time, the extra holes look noticeably worse than the extra staples.  Probably more likely to see the grade DROP from removing those extra staples. Not improve.
