Comics Silver AgeGrading Help Needed

Fantastic Four #10 with Strange Cut10790

Collector RLR private msg quote post Address this user
I just realized that my Fantastic Four #10 is cut such that the top spine edge measures 10-3/16” and the top outer edge measures 10-5/16”. The comic is otherwise in VG condition. How might this affect grading & value? It seems like a manufacturing defect, but how do I know if it was intentionally cut? The cut does not impact the printed areas.

It would be great if you could include pictures in your post, 1) so we can see what your talking about 2) because we really like to look at comics. Welcome to the forum.

I would gladly include a scan except they live in my safe deposit box. I hope to be able to scan the most valuable soon and can post some pics.

We will be impatiently waiting, lol, sounds like you may have some heavy hitters there

I have a gogo #5 that would have been 7.0 but for a bad cut. It made it 5.5, instead. If your book is only 4.0, then it likely doesn't matter.

My goal was to collect 1-200 in VG or better condition (as a gift) and I almost met my goal (there are a couple of GOODs that I missed: probably ran out of time). Luckily, I have 2 of this issue, though I probably purchased this one because the first one didn’t meet my standards. It is not a high grade collection, but it is a cool one!

@RLR low grade is better than no grade, that's awesome that you almost have 1-200, so do you have 2 #1's

Is this in the Grader's Notes?

I do have 1-200, I just ended up with 4 GOOD comics without better duplicates. 😢
I don’t have 2x #1’s, but I do have 2x #2’s, #3’s and a bunch of others. 😃

@RLR that's still pretty damn impressive. If you need to off load, I could use a #3, maybe some others. I have all the keys 1,2,4,5,12,13,18,etc. trying to concentrate on getting the big ones out of the way then go back and fill the holes.

@Batman66 I started with a good sized collection then filled in all the holes, sometimes multiple times. It would have been the best Christmas gift EVER if my ex hadn’t moved out on Christmas day!! Santa deemed him too naughty!(Note to self & others: Never move out before you receive the fabulous gift your spouse has been hinting about for a year!)
