how much do dull staples affect grade?

I have a couple 90s comics that have some dull staples (no rust) and i was just wondering how much that affects the grade.

Does it matter if there's no rust? or can it prevent it from hitting 9.6/9.8 if there are no other flaws?

The Overstreet guide only mentions that staples are 'clean' at the highest grades.  Of course CGC standards are not O/S standrads  but you'd think they generally line up.

So I guess it could depend on the meaning of 'clean'

I guess it really depends on how "dull". Right now I cannot think of any examples in which non-rusty staples prevented a book from receiving a fair grade.

Pictures might help.
