Hi, I'm curious if anyone has turned in their graded book to get pressed and cleaned and if so, how much did it get better?

it really depends on the damage your trying to correct on the book but from most accounts a press and clean generally only gives a 0.5 to 1.0 grade bump. 

its all varies by each situation and comic

if there's a specific book YOU have in mind, there's some subforums on these boards where you can post pictures and ask for opinions.  Graders notes might help too.

Dig around a bit.

Or ask a more specific question for more specific help

I had an Iron Man 55 that was graded 9.0.  It was resubmitted after a press and clean, came back 9.4.  So I know it is worth it for some books for sure (just depends on the defects).

I would post the book with lots of pics front back and inside maybe some zoomed in pics on the "bumps" bends I assume, in the Hey buddy can you spare a grade and post it as PGM _____
