I can see a 3.0 nice book I have a 2.5 but the spine is way worse but same chipping on sides. never pressed or cleaned it or removed the tear seal but one day I might. I just love it for what it is.

well that's why I asked if the cover was still attached as some people put extra staples to hold the book together when the staples detached from the cover or because they were reading it a lot and saw the cover pulling away from the staples so they added extra. Just a thing they did.

Is this one also owned by your friend? Maybe we need @joeypost to review for restoration.

That would be awesome if @joeypost could do that. I assume Joey is a resident expert around here :)

Look in the 12 cent logo. Looks like an extra staple was added at one time. When removed they probably used a marker to color touch the holes.

Thanks for your input. Would that merit a purple label ? If so can that restoration be removed?  thanks

Yes, it would be a purple label. You would have to get that scraped off, including the first wrap, as the ink bled through.

Oh dear :( . Extra cost to get it restored. That sucks.

What do you mean by first wrap?  Thanks !

First interior page of the book. That's what those little dots are in the upper left corner. May go through more than one page, you need to check.

Two color touched books in a row from your buddy. Did your friend buy these as a kid? Or did he buy them from someone else who’d done the, uh, “work”? :)
