Item DescriptionNO STOCK PHOTOS HERE. By using my own pictures and scans I seek to provide you the customer with the very best TRUE representation of the item you are considering to buy. My opinion of the grade of the item is on the conservative side for a reason. And, that is to allow everyone to potentially own a desirable comic for personal enjoyment or allow a comic investor to have room to decide if further professional services are cost effective and profitable. Thank you for your taking the time to thoroughly inspect the photos, be informed of the items Fair Market Value (FMV), and serious decision to own this comic or collectible. Since ALL my comics are RAW and I am not a certified collectibles grader I can ONLY give you my best estimate of its grade and condition based on my 40 years of managing my personal collection in (4) FOUR categories listed below.
NEAR MINT (NM) 9.2 to 9.8 - A nearly perfect copy that looks brand new with only a few very minor defects. Acceptable minor defects on a NM copy include: a very small amount of spine stresses, very minor instances of denting (two or three at most), slight corner blunting, and minor (less than 1/8") bends without color breaks. 65% of my collection fall in this condition range.
VERY FINE (VF) 9.0 to 7.5 - A VF copy has minor defects, but is in overall excellent condition. Most well-kept modern comics (especially if they have been read) fall into this grade. Acceptable defects on a VF are minor and include: Minor corner wear, a light accumulation of spine stress that may include color-break, a light accumulation of dents, and bends or folds less than 1/4" (note that on a VF copy, some color-break is allowed in a bend/fold). 25% of my collection fall in this range
VERY GOOD (VG) 5.0 to 3.5 - A comic in VG condition shows some significant wear, but has not accumulated enough total defects to reduce eye appeal to the point that it is not a desirable copy. A VG copy may have an accumulation of minor defects or one or two major ones. Acceptable defects on a VG copy include: Spine roll, 1/2" to 1" spine splits or other tears, a cover or centerfold that is detached at one staple, discoloration due to oxidation, and a moderate accumulation of water damage or staining. 9% of of my collection fall in this range
GOOD (GD) to FAIR (FR) or what I like to call READER or PROJECT grade 3.0 to 1.0 - A GD to FR copy has major defects, but is still complete and readable. A GD to FR copy will have a significant amount of damage, usually an accumulation of smaller defects punctuated with some major defects. Acceptable defects on a GD to FR copy include: A vertical book-length crease, 1.5"-2" spine split, cover or centerfold completely detached, major tears, heavy discoloration/brittleness due to oxidation, heavy amounts of staining, residue, and water damage. 1% of my collection fall into this range MOSTLY some late GOLDEN AGE or early SILVER AGE comics
