Signature Verification Question - Other Writing on Cover7815

Collector CatCovers private msg quote post Address this user
This may have been asked and answered already, but I couldn't find it. With signature verification, what happens if the signer put something on the cover besides his or her name? Is it included in the verification, or does it count as writing on the cover?

For example, this Batman 50 with the variant metal cover. Neal Adams signed 100 of them, but he numbered them as well. Does "19 of 100 NY" get included with the signature, or would it be writing on the cover that drops the grade?

I don't know for sure but I would hope it's included in the signature.

It most likely won’t hurt the grade. Here’s an example of a verified book with a “10/25” in addition to the grade. The grader’s notes make no mention of it and it couldn’t have received a 9.8 had writing on the cover been counted against the grade

Thanks, all! I expected it would be included, but wanted to make sure instead of getting a nasty surprise.

For what it's worth, CBCS even noted the number in the notes, so I dont think it will harm your grade
