I have choosen to get my book authentic rather than restored20617

The corner piece was fallen irretrievably so i decided to leave the book without rather than stick it with tape or glue.

Who agree? This books looks so proud even with a missing piece

Yes, please don't tape the cover! Great book!

It is a bit unfortunate that fear of “restoration” results in chunks missing / not properly reattached.

It is partly the fault of how restoration is often inadequately described.

A piece added that is reproduction is very, very different in my opinion vs a reattached piece of the original.

I’d personally prefer a professionally reattached piece than the chunk missing…

Oh, I definitely would, too. "Professionally" being the key word, though.

I don't have an issue with conservation or restoration done correctly, but I don't think that book needs it (barring any unseen problems). I do think that if you were going to have it conserved, it should be done by a professional.

A piece of tape holding a small chunk of a cover should not result in getting a restored grade. Many blue labels have tape on their covers, inside and/or outside. CBCS would note the presence of the tape on the label and in the grader’s notes. CGC stopped noting defects like this on their labels a few years ago, but should still include it in their grader’s notes.

Holding... but not stick back a piece who got loose.
I am right?

I agree with @esaravo.

I'd buy some archival safe tape and put a small piece on the back cover attaching it back to the cover.

Then send it in to Cbcs to get slabbed.

Yes. This is smart play to get the most value.
@Jr1776 if you hopefully still have the corner you can attach it with a piece of scotch tape on the inside. I have seen blue labels like this often. Missing cover and Resto will hurt the value more

Archival tape gets restored or conserved. Regular tape does not. I think... unless this has changed.

Yes, I think you are correct on that.
