Ltd pics....ok.....

9.0-9.2 - and depends upon how much handling has occurred.

Can it be cleaned of fingerprints?
Virgin copies with "black" as main color always are hard to get in a 9.8, unless handled very little.

Can it be a 9.4+?

Sure. Does it have good centering? Corners sharp and no micro abrasions?

Heavier card stock is known for dings and very light scratches.

Any of those defects exist?

For a comparison....I have a 9.6 Valiant SMotA#10 1st print. I was for sure it would pull a 9.8....but alas.

Nope.

Black covers are tough cookies.

For the second copy:

That top-left corner on the cover looks rough. Color break at lower staple.

9.2?

That second copy COULD get a 9.4 if there are no other flaws, but I think that's tops.

9.0-9.2. I see bad edge wear along bottom, and both top and bottom corners of the spine are rounded too. Some edge wear along top but very faint. I see one color breaking ding on back cover and one on front cover or is that s specks of dust?
