Not sure if thats a terrible crease on the front cover to if it was a tear and someone tried to glue it back I really don't know what to make of it... pages 12-14 are detached and the book has heavy spine split. Thank you!

first of all amazing book regardless of the grade also I would tape back the missing pages if you can do that the book is not even that bad the cover still looks really nice maybe if you restore it it can help but I would say if you can tape the pages this is a 4.5 book. without the pages 3.0

3.0, leave as is. I dont think taping the pages will raise the grade.

I believe taping back the pages would be considered restoration and I want to make sure it gets a blue label so I wouldn't want to do that.

I'd guess 2.0 to maybe 2.5, docking harshly for the splits and the eroded staples. Any chance the covers have been reglossed or restored in some way? They seem to have a strong glossy sheen, yet the book has stains and wear. The pic of the top edge split is a bit odd too; the long split edges look so sharp. Is the top staple added perhaps? In general something feels a bit off, but can't quite put my finger on it.

I completely agree with what your saying something seems off. The cover does have some sort of gloss to looks like. As well the book appears ti have rust migration on the pages or some staining from rusted staples but yet the staples are not rusted? It seems very weird...

Right. Seems like reglossing and staple replacement at minimum.

In any case, it's a book that's great to own in any condition.  (thumbsu

I'm assuming then if graded it would get a restored label?

Yep if there was reglossing AND staple replacement, restored label. If only staple replacement then conserved label.
