Not the prettiest due to the mis-cut, but here’s my entry. I tried to reason with CGC to update the label for this that it's the 1st gorilla cover in comics or 1st comic to showcase a gorilla on the cover, however you want to say it. There's a fun backstory online with the history of the book, and how this comic made it popular going forward to put gorillas on covers. Alas, I lost the battle for that lol. I may be reaching haha, but I choose to believe you could make an argument that this book paved the way for the creation of the DC villain, Gorilla Grodd. Just my .02.

Does CGC still note mis-cut books? I haven’t seen one that I can recall, and I’ve seen some way more mis cut books than yours.

I could be wrong but I don’t believe they do notate that anymore, and if I got this reholdered it would come off the label.

Thanks... I have a Supes 31 with that noted too. I wouldn’t mind reholdering it to have it removed. 
 

Yeah I mean once again I’m not 100% positive, but pretty damn sure they don’t anymore. I certainly haven’t seen anything like that in a looonnnggg time, but would be worth calling CGC to check before sending in. I just sent my Superman 30 and 31 in to get graded. Luckily no mis cuts to worry about lol.

Did you find a nice 30? It’s on my list to buy when I come across a nice one for a decent price. Good luck on the grade.

The seller stated that the reason he didn't send it in for grading was because CGC wouldn't grade it because of a very slight overhang. Would that still be the case now?

This was a concern with the original cases and, while it is less so now, they still have to be careful with what they'll slab as they still place the book in a plastic well with sides that are perpendicular to the floor.
