Grading Help Needed

Missing mvs stamp18427

Collector Jgwalters100 private msg quote post Address this user
Im new to using this, so i may have missed this elsewhere on the forum. I got my grade for a comic that was in pretty good shape but missing the MVS. The book got a .5 which seems low considering the book was probably 7.0. Is this the way it is. Thanks and sorry if i am just repeating another thread.

They deemed it incomplete and gave it a .5. Personally, I don't agree with that line of thinking.

It would be cool if Marvel still honored MVS with better prizes every year (like rare variants or limited edition singles). Just think of the chaos that would ensue.

Also my asm 25 was missing a non story page and was graded 0.5. I know cgc just lowers grades or green labels them. The book is an amazing shape otherwise. I was expecting a 5.0 at least. Thanks for the replies.

I guess .5 is what they do now. I found these examples on ebay. Batman 181 is a book notorious for missing th he pin up.

Unfortunately, it’s always going to be a .5 or .8 if pieces of the book are missing. That’s just the way the grading scale works.

Here are the graders notes for my Hulk 181 they used to assign a 2.5 grade for the missing MVS. Graded in 2018 not sure when it changed to max 0.5 or 0.8

According to the CBCS grading guidelines, if they give a book a .5, there is more wrong with it then a missing stamp that doesn't effect the story.

Yeah that's what I thought. It's a solid book otherwise. First bullseye. I didn't expect a 9.0 but it's easily 6 to 7.5 otherwise. The notes just list normal wear on an older book. I may just re submit through cgc. A .5 does not represent the book I have. Thanks for all the help again.

Yea, they're really hitting you hard for the missing stamp. Doesn't make sense if it's just wear, and not excessive damage.
I agree with your choice to submit elsewhere.

What am I missing? CGC is going to give you the exact same grade. There’s really no point and you are wasting money.

Yeah that's true. I guess it probably would. I guess just chalk it up as a loss.

@Jgwalters100 FYI I resubmitted that book to CGC for regrade and it got a 7.0 green label. If I wanted a blue label I think it would have received a 0.5 grade.
Sold it long ago but I’m fairly certain I got more for it as a CGC 7.0 green label instead of the original CBCS 2.5 blue label.

I need to buy up some 0.5 CBCS slabs with missing MVS!

@Davethebrave Might not be a bad idea but personally I feel that a green label is slightly less offensive that purple. For the books I’ve submitted to CGC all that have come back green or purple I had no desire to keep them. If my intention was to keep that IH 181 I would want the universal blue 0.5

On the other side of things. I got a blue label for a book that would have gotten a green through CBCS.

The Green Label of Death. That higher grade, it's just a lie.

@DrWatson Agreed I know they serve their purpose like a purple label does but I don’t want either.

I remember seeing the MVS stamp book looks completed, and slabbed on eBay…

What you're missing is the fact that your claim is incorrect.

I mean, even CBCS gives higher grades.








A 7.0 green is much better than a .5 blue.

According to Overstreet grading guide lines the most an incomplete book can get is a 1.5. That's why I always ask to see the book if it's older and a key issue.
