Looks very good to me but let me know what you guys think. Spine isn't exactly flat but took the best photos I could. Thanks!

Gorgeous copy! Get it dry cleaned and pressed to make your investment go further. RC is grimy and you have some foxing on the bottom edge of FC.

I'm guessing:

Pre-pressing and drycleaning: 7.5

Post-pressing and drycleaning: 9.0

7.5.  Too much staining for 8.0 IMO

7.0 to 7.5? Make sure there's been no restoration along the spine with that black line

Haha what grade do you think?

My sense of it is that it's in the VF range...7.5 does seem to be a pretty fair assessment.

Will dry cleaning get rid of these stains along the bottom edge?(shrug)

8.5 -9.2 with cleaning IMO ...on a somewhat unrelated topic , I gotta say ASM 119-129 might be my favorite 10 issue cover run in the series ...

congrats!

Very nice book! I was at the 7.5, I can't see why a clean and press couldn't make it hit an 8.5

I'm at 7.0 like it is....press/clean would definitely help,but can't see it going above 8.0 with the tear at the top staple and the foxing. Still, a beauty of a book with nice colors.

I see a lot of little things going on. If I was you, I'd be happy with anything 7.0 and up.
