3 3

10 posts in this topic

Edge/Corner/Spine wear, staining at the top right under the word "Group".

Is there a spine split at the top left,? if not, IMO the wear at the bottom right keeps this book from being higher.

7.0 FINE/VERY FINE (FN/VF):  Back to Top
An above-average copy that shows minor wear but is still relatively flat and clean with outstanding eye appeal. A small accumulation of minor bindery/printing defects is allowed. Minor cover wear beginning to show, possibly including minor creases. Corners may be blunted. Inks are generally bright with a moderate reduction in reflectivity. Stamped or inked arrival dates may be present. Minor foxing. The slightest spine roll may be present, as well as a possible moderate color break. Staples may show some discoloration. Slight staple tears and a small accumulation of light stress lines may be present. Slight rust migration. Paper is cream to tan. Centerfold is mostly secure. Minor interior tears at the margin may be present.

IMO, if there is a spine split, depending on the severity the grade will drop to a VG/FN 5.0 - FN 6.0

Thanks. I would be happy with a 6.5. We will see. There is no spine split that I can see.
