Lois Lane 70 - is this Transfer or Something Else??8369

Thinking of throwing my hat in the ring for this book but can't decide if this is a transfer that can be cleaned or some oil or something causing the cover to be transparent!!

Thoughts??

@KatKomics - I can’t tell what’s going on from that picture. Here’s a scan of the cover on my beat-up copy for comparison.

Have to get a shot of the inside of the cover there - but looks like oil to me.

@KatKomics what are you spending on that copy, with a stain like that, it will get hit hard on the grade

Most likely an oil of some type. I own a Gold Key comic with a similar issue.

I think that's the inside of the front cover. I'll check one of my copies and take a pic in a little bit.

Looks very uniform - like a label was applied and removed, leaving an oily residue.

@Batman66 spending nothing so far...just trying to decide if worth bidding on...think it is likely some sort of oil making the cover see through rather than an ink transfer from another book pressed against it and will probably not be bidding on it!

Too uniform must be as @X51 or @KCBatmanFan say - must have had a label on at some point and left a residue

Maybe as a reader copy??

Yep,

That's the inside cover showing through
Was hoping it was just a contact transfer - oh well, staying away from this one!

@KatKomics And here I just pulled out a copy and took pictures.

Yeah, I'd stay away from it too. Unfortunately, it's one of those books that's just really hard to find in nice condition. The white cover doesn't help.

I'd stay away. There are better reading copies out there.
