Grading Help on an ASM 614814

So I'm having a tough time grading this book - looking for opinions on what it might be.
Centerfold appears to be detached at one staple.

I would grade it at 6 to 6.5. Could be slightly higher but concerned about potential tears at top staple. I would not pay too much attention to the detached staple as might not reduce the grade as much as you might think.

I think it looks a bit nicer than a 6.0 or 6.5


It appears to have nice color and corners.

Depends on the severity of the spine tics.

Creases or Cover Surface wear?

The back is often times very telling of a books wear.

The back here looks pretty clean to me.

The Page quality looks pretty clean as well.

I think it makes it into the 7.0 range, but without having it in hand its hard to tell.

The book looks alot better than 6.0 IMO. Its just that centerfold issue that I don't know how to account for.

Thanks everyone - I was hoping it might stretch to the 7.0 range.
Seems like it might have a chance at that.
