Marvel Spotlight 1 Misprint Issue Number4505

I have not seen this before. I was checking my collection to see if I had this title, and noticed the issue number is missing from its usual box. Thoughts as to whether this is a variant, whether the value is increased or decreased by the error. What would CBCS do if this were submitted with regards to label notes? It's not a particularly sought after book and this grades 6.5 and could bump with a cleaning.

No one actually appears to be getting their asking prices but on eBay there are a few that are roughly 10x the regular price. A fine-ish copy that did sell went to $10.

I had never seen this variant before.

This is a variant, not an error. I believe Overstreet values it more than issues with an issue number.

Yup Variant. 2017 Overstreet lists it as such.

@OGJackster Has went ahead and posted a picture of what I had mentioned in the Overstreet guide.

Kind of on the same subject, I noticed there was a month missing on one of the covers... just an oddity I guess.

Was that comic released at the same time?

I'm seeing 40 cents on both.

My LCS had this guy for $10 and thought it was the strangest thing and had to have it. They’re out there but not many as I only ever see a handful at a time on the old Bay.

Thanks for all the feedback. I gave it a careful clean and press and will be sending it out for slabbing.
