ASM 47 grading help7696

Collector KaseyArt private msg quote post Address this user
Hello all, many of you helped me with grading my ASM 15 so here I am again with help for 47,49 and 111. I am going through books I no longer am wanting to keep so wanting to get an idea of grades. Most of these were my uncles that I have now. Not that I don't like Spidey.....just have other books I go after and keep. I will be doing these as separate posts to make it easier.....at least I hope that is the best way. Thanks in advance.

Here is 47:

I'd say 3.5 - 4.5 on this one. You need to check the page count and paper quality too. See if the centerfold is detached. The book has rusted staples.

If he has the rusty staples replaced, would the grade improve?

If the staples were to be replaced it would be graded as a restored comic.

Assuming no tears, and that stain on the "A" in "MAN" is on the bag and not the book, this is a 4.5 to 5.0. The rusted staple does not affect the grade. If you get the book pressed, it's a solid 5.0. Not worth getting the book graded, this is a common book in mid-grade.

Next time it would help a lot if you scan the book outside of the bag.

Rusted Staples don't effect the grade? NOT
