@martymann Marty, are you going to have them pressed?
A few look like they would benefit from a press.

Thank you for the suggestion but I think I'll let them go as is.

That was done by the retailer to get credit for unsold comics. Before direct sales, the publisher asked for the top third of the cover to be returned as proof that you destroyed the book. It was too expensive to pay for the complete books to be returned. Obviously, there are many examples out there that prove that the re-seller sold the "destroyed" book at a discount.
