7.5

Would have to go with 8.5 mainly because of the stress around the staples and a few other spine ticks, the blunted corner etc. although those stains or marks on the back to the left of "MEGA" are concerning - depending what they are I could go lower i.e. are they punctures? just indents?.

Would still think that even with a press a 8.5?

I've found this site is shockingly helpful!!! (another boardie posted it a while ago and into my favs it went!)

I'd give it a 8.5-9.0 with the color breaks on the spine and slightly rounded corners.

there is a finger print top right front corner and all along left edge of back cover. im guessing more would show up in person.

As is,.. I give it a 7.0 due to bottom staple, rounded corners, and back cover needs cleaned.

After clean and press,.. 7.5

EDIT: I really don't think the book needs a press, but back cover definitely needs cleaning... so do both.

I would say an 8.5 with a clean and press. In addition to the spine ticks, there also appears to be a long crease parallel to the front right edge about 1 inch in. It could just be an artifact from the scan

VF- (7.5). Too many color breaks on the cover and the stains on the back.

Agree- 7.0/7.5.
Hopefully it wasn't owned by Dylan, or anyone else who likes to read hot books on the toilet.

Just tried this with a book I am grading a 9.8 and when I used their "grading" it came up as a 9.4 (below). Not so sure I like this program, but will try it again with a lower grade book and see how that matches CBCS.

So, according to the program, the โ€œsmall date stampโ€ dropped it down two grades...?

@CaptainCanuck That is the only thing I can guess at.
