Grading Help Needed

Can This Defect be "Insignificant Enough" for a 9.6 Grade?12469

Collector Nuffsaid111 private msg quote post Address this user
Just curious as to folks thoughts - This is a snippet of a Gold Key from the late 1970's.
Clearly there is color rub/loss in the corner. The book was given a 9.6 grade from the "other" company.

Thoughts? yea? nay?
My personal opinion - I don't see how it's appropriately graded as 9.6, but maybe this is ok for Gold Keys from late 70s

It was probably classified as a bindery tear which has little impact on grade.

they should call you DrComic. You always have the answers.

DrComic is Correct assuming it is bindery tear.

Side note; every time I read Gold Key I immediately think Golden Age Key then I see pink/black stripes. It is very psychologically straining, but I love Gold Key books😁

I suppose my remaining question is does a corner surface rub/abrasion = manufacturing bindery tear? (i.e. was it classified correctly as a bindery tear, when it's not even a tear. It's surface color rub/loss)

Unless that corner color loss was present during manufacturing I am not feeling it.
