Hello Forum! I recently purchased an ASM 121 with water damage on the back cover. Reaching out to those with pressing experience if these waves can be pressed out. Also will a professional clean take away water stains. Thank you for your in put. Nuff said.

I'm going to say that pressing is not going to help that. Water can cause all kinds of problems, including staining and mold. A pressing won't take out that stain.

Yes, it will help some. It will definitely look better after pressing and cleaning than it does now.

The waves will be removed but the water stain won't unless you want a restored grade.

When you made the purchase, did you know about the water damage? If not I would ask for my money back or a partial refund.

I did know about the water damage. Still wanted the book as the rest of it is very sound and the cover is in 8.5 - 9.0 range.
