Leaning toward fair or fair/good so 1 to 1.5.
Probably closer to 1

Is the book complete? Centerfold attached? What does the back cover look like? Either staple attached?

everything is there and yes it is still attached no rusty staples no cut outs its complete and the back cover looks the same as the front basically mirrors its condition

Does your book look worse than this?

@TomD Its a rough book but I think people are forgetting the amount of damage a book can have at 1.0. Yours is a 1.8-2.0 IMO

If you can pay 1.0-1.5 money, I think you'll do very well 👍🏻

2.0.

And someone needs to put the comic book down, wash their hands like 5 times with some orange pumice cleaner, and get that dirt outta the fingernails.... then come back and handle comic books. Preferably with latex gloves.

I never touched the book just an fyi its in the bag still that was for a friend to see if it can be pressed out to present a little better. When I actually handle my books i have clean hands. Sorry for being a guy that works in the mud. The pictures were taken on different days. Thanks for your concern.

I'd say from what I can see that its a 2.0 book. I'd need to see the extent of the rodent damage to make my decision final.

Agree! I think a good press would snag at least a solid 2.0
