Detached Centerfold5416

Collector hockeymonkey605 private msg quote post Address this user
Good morning,

I recently got a silver age book with a detached centerfold at the bottom staple. A few of the surrounding pages are also detached at this staple. I'm pretty sure the book is around a 7.0 to 7.5 when not taking this defect into consideration. CGC would probably give it a green label, and I was wondering how CBCS would take factor this in. Thanks

@hockeymonkey605 - The highest grade that CBCS will assign to a book with a detached centerfold is a 7.0. Most of the time, a book with that defect will fall in the 5.5 to 7.0 range, unless there are other defects that would bring down the grade more.

What about a single staple being the issue, or as above centrefold AND one or more adjacent wraps?

On this site, click on “Services” then “Grading” then “Grades” to get an idea of what defects are associated with what grades. The Overstreet Price Guide (or even better, their Grading Guide) is/are good sources to consult for grading.

Impossible to answer without front and back cover scans.

I also do not agree that CGC would likely grade a book with a detached c-fold with a qualified grade.

That is more likely if the book is, at a minimum,otherwise an 8.0

Woah. The first thing I thought of when I read the topic was some playmate who was questioning her life choices.
