PGM Daredevil #1 ***Grade is In***

Hello All,

I would greatly appreciate your guess as to the grade of this Daredevil #1.

A Few Notes:

  • Pages are Cream to Off-White
  • Book is complete with 32 pages no rips, tears or cut-outs in the interior
  • All interior wraps are attached at both staples
  • staples are tarnished, no rust
  • The blue colored stain on the back cover is the same indigo colored ink used on the back cover art so my guess is that there was a printing issue that sprayed the back cover with that ink. The ink did not soak into the inside of the cover.
  • The spine is weak at the staples but there are no tears or breaks
  • The staple holes are enlarged but the cover is surprisingly tight
  • The first two pics are scans the rest are photos

Thanks.

Thanks to all for your grades, so far.

Other guesses are always welcome!

Does the extra info in the description at the top of the post affect your opinion? Curious if I should bother to include it.

Not sure if I'm seeing it clearly, but is that a subscription crease? Seems to only run through the bottom half of the book.

If so I guess that's likely to affect the grade a bit.

It does look like a subscription crease running through the bottom half of the entire book (you can see it as a subscription bend on the back cover).

The book looks like a 4.5 to me, but I don't know if the partial subscription crease might knock it down to 4.0 or lower?

I'm also not sure how much the ink transfer on the back cover might impact the grade...

Nice copy!

There is a light crease that runs up to DD’s arm but not the full length of the book. There is no evidence of a fold on the back cover of inner pages. 

I think this this was probably more from a pocket fold from a previous reader or possibly from a newsstand vendor where the book was originally sold 

Thanks!
