  1. I probably should have given it a light C&P. It wouldn't have changed the grade but may have given the front cover a little better presentation. I was scared of needlessly damaging the book. I guess I'm just second guessing myself at this point.
  2. just giving those interested an update. I sent the book off and it came back a 1.8. Photos are under "Famous Funnies #1" in the Brother can you spare a grade forum. I wish it had been a 2.0 but I think the grade is right. There was more wrong with it than I initially thought. Still happy with the way it turned out.
  3. I am excited. I feel the grade given was spot on.
  4. The last 5 are the back cover. Unfortunately, I didn't realize my full back cover photo did not turn out (super blurry) before I packaged it up and sent it off. It should be back Tues or Weds. Thanks for looking. I opted not to do any pressing and hardly any cleaning.
  5. I agree. It should come back a 9.6 unless you get the person that grades my books. Then it may be 9.4
  6. i think it can be cleaned to at least an 8.5
  7. Please check out my Famous Funnies #1 (July 1934). The first 5 pics are the front cover. The last five are the back. My complete back cover pic did not turn out and I did not realize it before I boxed it up to send off. Book is all there but cover is for all practical purpose detached. Thanks.
  8. 9.6-9.8 Where did you find that jewel?!?1
  9. Do you plan on pressing it? If so, I would like to see it then.
  10. I totally understand those that would keep it raw, but I'd still slab it for posterity. There are tons of ways to read this book without having to use the original. My 2 cents. I wish it was mine.
  11. I think the white portions of the front and back cover could be really cleaned up.
  12. 2.5 to 3.0. tiny chance of 3.5 out of respect but I doubt it. I'd love to have that book.
  13. I also thought the current grading trend was slanted towards the generous side, until I got my submissions back. I can't objectively understand why my grades were that far from my estimates. I've gone over a couple of them inch by inch and can't see issues that would have garnered the grade they got. I'll keep trying.
