INCOMPLETE COMICS AND GRADES

I have a quick grading question: my most recent shipment included a 2.0 that was also marked incomplete for missing a coupon from a non-story page. I thought incomplete books were usually graded a .5. Just curious.

A missing coupon doesn’t automatically receive a .5 

it will however receive a comment on the label if “qualified” green or “universal” blue and graded accordingly

Yeah, NG/0.5 is for something that affects art/story. Qualified label will 'ignore it' - and Universal will ding it (hard).

Thanks for the help. Another dealer said that as long as the book would be below a 7.0 without the defect, it'll get a universal label. What's the logic behind that?

Incorrect.  There are literally scores of CGC-certified books with Qualified Grades less than 7.0 FN/VF.  Just take a look through the Heritage Auction Archives:facepalm:

On a silver age major key what about a non story page missing..?  Not the whole wrap just one side of it..?  Qualified..?

Under normal circumstances, yes.
