I will grade it for you just like CBCS would.

I will get back to you in, oh, about 4 months.

Send me money first.

I'd agree with the 6.5 area but there are others here better suited to grade it.
Nice book though.

Nah.

There is a small tear at the top staple, visible from the back cover.

Based on what else I can see, the spine is slightly rolled and a press would strengthen the integrity of the spine while correcting the roll/page fanning.

I'd put it at a 5.5-6.0.

Solid 6.5 with a press.

Books generally look nicer in hand, while scans tend to over exaggerate defects.

Back in the early'90s, I sold my original copies of ASM 129 and IH 181 due to circumstances. They were opened and read only once. GOD I wish I had those books back.

Today I have 6 slabbed copies of 129 that are worth 3-4 times what I paid, but I don't have a 181.

@kaptainmyke Press it, slab it, and keep it!

CBCS 6.0, CGC 6.0-6.5( depending on how drunk they are when grading, PGX 10.0. The low lighting in their basement while grading will hide the imperfections on this book.

I propose from now on we give our grades as follows.







This will be the new standard.

How come you don't sell 4 or 5 of those and pick up a high grade hulk 181?

Maybe if you told Her she was a 10 it would have went over better.
