Probably one of the worst condition you could ever be bestowed upon of one of the greatest comics ever. 1st phoenix. My neighbor gave me some comics her son owned a year ago. This was one of them of some bronze stuff in a military file locker. I plan on finding a place to send it to to make it grade better. It obviously was very loved by the original owner. Pen mark, cupon cut out that affects story :.(, the cover omg. This book has seen better days.
With a full service what max grade might it get? A 5.0?

I doubt any restoration would be a good idea. Like doner pages or cover kind of thing.

It is what it is. A free comic.

Thanks lol. I almost wanted to cry because I once dreamed of owning it. But too much $$$$$. Even years ago I couldn't afford shoes hardly lol.
I think it should be left in its current state just spine roll fix, press and clean. Might do wonders.

I think I have seen on the forums here that a piece or page missing that effects the story line will get you a .5. Someone correct me if I'm wrong please. But it's probably still worth a few $$. Good neighbor.

I guess better to have than be without. So no matter what its probably gonna get a .5? :/ or .5 off?

I mainly want it to present well. Ive seen cars get fixed up. I know comics aren't the same but...

I agree that you will get an "Incomplete" for that cutout. Not worth the expense to press+clean....in my opinion.

As a comic romantic, I think it is awesome that some kid cut that form out and mailed it in, to order some of those Treasury sized comics. I wonder which ones he got?

Not the original ones. I had to sell my comics to buy diapers many years ago!!! I've since reacquired the Cap one though!!!

I wasn't thought of yet. An amazing book though. I really wish it was in super great condition. At least this is more of an affordable copy.

What grade roughly could this get before and after clean and pressed? What could be the current grade?

No higher than 1.8 but you are looking at 1.0-1.5 with that large coupon missing.
