So my good friend has unearthed an epic collection of comics he put together in high school and has asked my help in grading and selling em (coming soon to a CGC boards sale thread near you!!!), most of which have been straight forward but this copy of Hulk #181 is giving me some pause. It looks great, and could benefit from a cleaning/pressing, but does have an obvious defect in the missing chunk on the cover - i'm unsure of how much of a hit it would take for something like that. The MVS is still intact so any faults you see below are it. I was thinking 3.5 or 4.0 at best?

Any copy of this key book is a Nice Copy and could be the pride of anybodies collection.

IMO this book would have graded at a VG 4.0, however...

With the piece missing at the bottom right front cover I would say...

3.0 GOOD/VERY GOOD (GD/VG):  Back to Top
A used comic book showing some substantial wear. Cover shows significant wear, and may be loose or even detached at one staple. Cover reflectivity is very low. Can have a book-length crease and/or dimples. Corners may be blunted or even rounded. Discoloration, fading, foxing, and even minor to moderate soiling is allowed. A triangle from 1/4" to 1/2" can be missing out of the corner or edge; a missing 1/8" to 1/4" square is also acceptable. Tape and other amateur repair may be present. Moderate spine roll likely. May have a spine split of anywhere from 1" to 1-1/2". Staples may be rusted or replaced. Minor to moderate staple tears and moderate stress lines may be present, as well as some rust migration. Paper is brown but not brittle. Centerfold may be loose or detached at one staple. Minor to moderate interior tears may be present.

Nice! Has that missing piece but still many positives. I agree with your assessment, 3.5/4.0 as is and IMO should reach 4.0 no problem with a press.

Yeah i'm thinking 4.0 will be easy to hit. I just found a 4.0 for sale on mycomicshop and it is also missing a similar sized chunk from the corner ( https://www.mycomicshop.com/search?ItemID=48599212 ). Cleaning and pressing shall be done!

Definitely press it. After which, I think 4.0 is obtainable. Sucks about that corner....
