Comics Silver AgeGrading Help Needed

Green Lantern vol.2 #59... is it a 3.0?14139

Collector va1ez private msg quote post Address this user
Just started collecting and I got this GL key. I wonder if it is 3.0 or lower and whether I should grade it or not.

There is this nasty stain that runs through the whole book and the cover is extremely fragile close to the spine.

With the stain and rusty staples, I think it's probably a 1.8 to 2.0.

Makes sense, well, I'll hold off with the grading then

@va1ez - Yes, welcome to the forums. I would guess in the 2.0 to 2.5 range.

I'm in the 2.0/2.5 camp.

I don’t know if it’s a 3.0 or not; I’m not confident grading that kind of defect at that severity. It would at least present better with a press.
Looking at recent sales I could go either way on whether or not to grade; it would depend on how much $ I had into initial purchase.

@Joosh Yeah, I didn't pay that much, around 15$, but sending stuff for grading from Europe is a bit on the expensive side. And thank you

Me too.

@va1ez Rusty staples... the gift that keeps on giving. Get what you can for it and invest up.
