What would be a real doozy is seeing this book get a restored label for trimming, when subbed for grading.

The book was miscut at the top, original staple placement being off center looked like it had a lot to do (by way of causation) with the original spine roll.

But upon pressing, all of that would be much less readily apparent.

The book would just look like a book that may have been trimmed at the top.


I pressed the book myself. It was not trimmed nor will it get a restored/trimmed notation on the label.

A lot of EC horror books have miswraps and staples off center. It certainly effects grade.

There is a smugness when you take a spine roll book that will barely fit into a bag and turn it into a more normal book.

Spine roll removal before final pressing and cleaning.
