  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 3 yearsJesse_O (18809): What does a checkmark (asterisk online) by the grade mean? In rare cases, a comic book will look much better than the given grade. In these rare cases, a Check Mark will be placed on the label by the numerical grade. The best way to understand why a specific comic book received a Check Mark designation is to refer to the graders' notes. Example: a comic is graded 8.0. However, the covers are such that it looks like a 8.5 or a 9.0. CBCS...

Press or no press for higher grade Amspider 8 17 minutesNoblebeast315 (926): Yes I would. Although I don’t think you can get higher than an 8.5 with the corner color breaks, a bump up to 8.0 would greatly increase the value. It is worth it in my opinion. All the best.
Off topic; Pub, what are you drinking? Frontier2Xterra 238 25 minutesEbaySeller (5946): @00slim or others, Please educate me on Rye. I've been tempted but I've never bought a bottle. Does the taste have anything in common with Rye bread? I make a passable Old Fashion, what would be the purpose of using Rye instead of Whisky? I heard somewhere that good ol boys drink both whisky and rye (and sing) on the day they think they are going to die. I should be prepared for that at least.

X-Men X of Swords Creation #1 Comic hogan36 6 6 hoursxkonk (7430): I don't have personal experience with it, but my understanding is that if pretty much every copy has that damage it will be considered a manufacturing defect and won't hurt the grade that much. A lot of the recent larger Marvel books have those corner issues.

My copy does seem to have have more margin on the left of the back cover. What do y'all think?...
