Hey all. I stumbled across this book over the weekend and wanted to know your thoughts on a grade.

I've gotta a few opinions everywhere from 5.0 to 8.5 (w/press). What do you all think?

I’m closer to 5.5-6.0, with a press maybe guaranteeing a 6.0. Sweet find!

7.5 - 8.0  I don't know what these other guys are seeing, but I think that they are allowing the modernity of the book to affect how they are grading it.

Thanks all. Personally I thought this was at least a 7.5 and Maybe an 8 with a press.

Do you all feel the 5-6.5 because of the chip on the bottom left cover? I don't think this book was ever read.

The chip on the bottom is a big factor, but there's enough creasing and other defects to hold it down. 

For me it's a 6.0 as is with 7.0 potential after a quality press. 

I really don't know the value of the book, but is the potential grade bump worth the cost of pressing and encapsulation?
