Avengers #16 Staple defect?
2 2

7 posts in this topic

I picked up a really pretty Avengers #16 from my LCS for a good price and took a gamble on some weird staple placements. I didn’t have it in my collection so I took a gamble anyway.

The staples are not in the spine and there is no spot where old ones were. 
 

is it a factory error or long  ago did someone put them in there? The covers are not detached and there is no evidence of reglueing. 
 

thoughts?

It's safe to assume that they were simply stapled in an odd place during assembly.

That is what I was thinking also.

Thank you everyone for the comments. I am about to pull the trigger on submitting this one before the price changes. would this factory defect get a green label?

No. Blue. 
I’ve seen an Avengers 4 that graded CGC 9.4 with even worse staple asymmetry. Fugly book…
