Why not? It's a photo. Not incriminating evidence of a crime or disclosing anyone's personal details. Heck, you could even blur out the slab#s if you really wanna feel warm and fuzzy about tit.

I dont know....i can understand it that when a new poster has no backup or proof it is very hard to take them at their word. Im an accountant...my whole life is proof or backup...if i dont have it there are financial implications for the company i work for...not just hurt feelings on a message board

Serial numbers on slabs are just as good as pictures. When someone refuses to provide either one it gets mighty suspicious. Doesn’t take a whole lot of effort to type in a number... I don’t think it’s ignorant that people don’t want to discuss an issue that could be just a fabrication

That said, there have been times when someone has and gives a legit reason for not wanting to post the evidence. Like actually legit. Not “because I don’t wanna”

I’m assuming we are talking about your locked thread. I believe the OP of this thread had at least some reason for not wanting to share ( extremely valuable book)

Actually, that's exactly what dry cleaning is ... using a liquid that is dry. "Dry" just means: without water; it doesn't mean "without liquid." There are lots of liquids that don't have water in them.

What did you think your local dry cleaner did, anyway? Rub your clothes with an eraser? :-)

The book being downgraded, and now having the sigma of "restoration" hanging over it thus making it harder to stick somebody else with the book without losing the value the downgrade has cost him. Does that about sum up the reason for not disclosing pics of the book?


I seem to be on the side of...................PICS or it didn't happen

With something like this, pics would certainly help us see what exactly we're talking about. I'd certainly like to see the book in question.

Maybe it's the phrasing and tone of "pics or it didn't happen"? It does sound accusatory. But it's usually said playfully. And this is the internet afterall.

Agreed mostly with @00slim. It usually translates to “pics cause its irritating you wont provide them”, as is the case for me in this thread.

In the case of @VCBE , yes, I flat out dont believe the story is true. Claiming to have evidence that the major grading companies are falsely inflating grades for big dealers is a serious accusation, then failing to provide said data is ridiculous. Hence the thread lock.

Wait, where was this? A different thread maybe?
