My (ameture) guess would be 3.5 to 4.0, that 'halo' of what I am assuming is oxidation and not dirt could burn you though.

This is really a tough book to grade. Vertical spine breaks dont bother me nearly as much as horizontal; nor does a bit of shadow.

6.0 wouldnt surprise me here. But neither would 4.0. Iā€™m gonna be no help on this one šŸ˜

Slab it. Slab all the things.

I'm in the 4.5 arena. Store the book in a Mylites2/Fullback.

Yeah...once "browning" starts in, grade points matter.

IMO - very subjective...

This is a tough one.
- Colors look bright - 6.0+
- Edges...ah...alright for a 5.0+
- centering looks good - 6.0+
- Browning - 3.5
- minor defects >10 = 3.0
- minor restoration = 3.0+

AVG = 26.5 / 6 = 4 w/2.5 remain.

Drop the remaining or not. 4.0-4.5

Easy way to subjectively view any comic...high points average.

*shrugs*
May work differently for you.

Probably a 5.0 at best and not really worth slabbing.
Unless , of course, it has sentimental value.

If you really like to be critical, add in corners, defects, and really just about anything. Then divide total by # of categories. You'll get a ballpark.

Because when you do send one in for grading, they will be doing the same critical look.

It's all subjective.
