What's the cut off date for a stamp to be acceptable before the grade is impacted? I have some DD Miller date stamps from the 80s.. I found that funny

Honestly if it’s a 9.8 books and the date stamp is the only thing on it, I’m pretty sure it can still warrant a 9.8. If not I k ow for sure you can get 9.4-9.6 books with date stamps. In many ways they are regarded as part of the process back in the day.

Date stamps are awesome to me IF they don't detract from the overall artwork and image on the front cover.  Date stamps having day, month, year are a bonus to me personally when they are on the back cover and clear.

I was very excited when I stumbled across these at a show in Seattle a few years ago. The dealer purchased them from an older collector from Portland who grew up in the same small town I grew up in and shopped at the same newsstand where I first started collecting kind of seriously in 1965/66. I eventually met the person and his wife and purchased more. Back in the olden days sometimes a store might only get 1 copy of certain title and if you weren't the first one there on a Tuesday or Thursday when new books came out you were SOL unless it wound up at someone else's spinner rack or shelves. More often or night it was depending on when parents went in to town to go shopping or pay bills. It didn't dawn on me that there were older people who collected comics and had their own means if transportation.😡
