Thor #165 grade with missing back corner piece?

I have this decent copy of Thor #165 that I’m interested in having graded. There is some normal wear which doesn’t look terrible, but there is a small corner piece missing from the back cover, left side. I’ve measured it, and it’s slightly less than 1/2 inch. Any thoughts on what this might be graded as or how much that corner will take off? Just curious because I had a Fantastic Four Annual #6 with a few torn and missing pieces from the spine, and it just came back as 6.0 from CGC. I was expecting lower on it.

I wouldn’t spend the money to grade that book. 

Just sell it and buy one already graded.

IMO the book looks like a FN 6.0 without the corner piece missing,how much of a hit will it take,VG/FN 5/0?

Looking at completed eBay auctions, books in your grade have sold for $130.00 - $170.00 Raw, a CGC FN 6.0 sold for $242.00 and a CGC FN/VF 7.0 sold for $280.00.

So...Should you have it graded or just place it in a Mylite with Board?, All depends on what your plans are for the book.
