Grading Help Needed

How Would This Affect Grade4618

Collector MarcJ private msg quote post Address this user
I have a book with only this defect that I can tell. Generally, how would this affect the grade since it appears to be color breaking?




Thanks for any info you can give.

color breaks are significant

So, let's say this was a 9.6 or 9.8 otherwise, this would significantly drop it down?

@MarcJ need to see a more overall picture, that is REALLY zoomed in. They look like they are small, I've seen 9.4s otherwise perfect with tiny ones, but thats sure to be your ceiling.

Needs a press for that slight spine curl bump. The 2 knicks will probably give it a 9.4 or 9.6, assuming there are no other defects on the book. How's the back?

9.2-9.4, and like kap said that slight roll needs to go away

If I were selling raw, I would call it 9.2, to be safe, even if there are no other noticeable flaws on the book. If you submit maybe you luck out and get a 9.4 or 9.6, but maybe not...

Yeah, that was my concern too. I'd get it pressed but would like to get a 9.6. If that is out of reach, I'll pass.

Barring other warts I will say 9.4.

It also depends on how far those color breaks go on the back cover. It would be hard to assign a grade without seeing the adjacent back cover.
