I have a restored Batman # 7  grade 4.0  Does restoration real effect the value?  My book looks great. Came back with restoration label.

The value is highly dependent upon the extent and quality of the restoration...  However, if its been trimmed, the value falls off a cliff.  If you post a pic of the label we can probably give you a closer idea of what the value may be.

If the restoration is slight and doesn't include trimming, the value would be roughly the same as for an unrestored 2.0, though eye-appeal could play a role. If the restoration seems like it is minor and might be fairly easily reversible, it could sell for a little more. Trimming, even if considered slight restoration, has a stigma with collectors, and tends to make books even less desirable than even other forms of restoration, but "falling off a cliff" is a bit of an exaggeration. It would likely sell for a little less than another slightly restored 4.0, but not appreciably.
