Read this legend for an understanding for how our grading system works:
M = Mint
perfect, unread comic. White pages, sharp corners, perfectly aligned
cover, tight staples, sharp square corners, no creases, marks, fading of
any kind - no flaw whatsoever. We have never actually graded a book as
Mint. to Quote Phil Seuling: "Mint is a flavor of chewing gum."
Nm = Near Mint
is what most comics look like when purchased new, presuming no
harassment on the racks. Tight staples, glossy cover, sharp corners, no
marks, white pages. Any flaws are HINTS of a flaw. Maybe look very
closely and you the perfectionist will see a miniscule mis-alignment of
the cover with the pages, or the hint of the rounding of a corner. Run
your fingers down the spine and you may feel a crease which isn't
visible to the eye. Those are the kind of things which mean that nearly
all "as new" comics are graded as Near Mint rather than Mint. You will
notice that in our 1000s of listings, we don't use this grade either.
VF-NM is usually our top grade.
VF = Very Fine
condition. Sharp, bright and clean. May have minor spine wear or a
small corner crease, or slight surface wear. Often, at first glance a
Very Fine comic will appear Near Mint, although closer inspection will
reveal trace ( but distinct) imperfections. This is typically the best
grade seen for Silver Age comics.
F = Fine
nice book, still attractive to look at. An optimistic first glance
might reasonably hope for a VF or even a VF-NM. Staples still firm,
there is at least some gloss, good corners, but closer look reveals yet
Vg = Very Good
solid book. Immediately visible but not dramatic flaws - conversely no
dramatic virtues either. Just clean somewhat worn and solid. Maybe some
creases but no significant tears. Staples still solid. Book still
solid, but clearly worn.
G = Good
VG, but with flaws more pronounced. Creases are a little bigger, maybe a
larger tear, staples still well attached, but may have stress tears
around them. There may be small chips out of the cover. The wear is
everywhere but the book is still sound.
Fr = Fair
Fair comic is well worn with large flaws, but the book and cover are
still, possibly a piece or two missing from the cover, a staple may be
loose. OK for a reader, a cheap placeholder for a collector.
Pr = Poor
graded book should be complete. A book in POOR has its cover and all
its pages. Things may be loose or waiting to get lost, there may be a
piece missing here or there, but the book is there. Still readable. We
do not give incomplete books a grade.
that when a grade appears as (VG-F) or something similar, it means the
book was somewhere in-between the two selected grades. And when a
listing appears as (G+), it means that the book was slightly better
than the grade described, or slightly less in the case of (G-).
