How much do you think the restoration will drop this grade?15789

Maybe they just like me better. Nah, that's not it. BPaxson002 private msg quote post Address this user
While looking around on Ebay, I came across a really nice book in the link posted below. I was about to hit the BIN til I noticed the restoration admission on the very last line of the description. How big of a hit do you think this book would take for that?

Hasnt this seller been mentioned dozens of times for selling books that are trimmed, restored and so forth and understating the work? Might just be my memory, but I was sure this one was considered trouble

Restoration isn't a grade hit so much as a category change. CBCS would note the restoration on their normal label; CGC would give you the purple restoration label. At that point the grade is somewhat artificial. That said, if you don't care about the restoration and believe the seller's grading, you would have a book that looks like a 9.4.

Thinking while I was typing, maybe you mean how much of a price hit? That's unclear. Some people might be willing to live with restoration on a key book they can't afford otherwise. Some people would never buy a restored book at all.
