PGM ASM #129 - The Grade is In!!!
3 3

I am probably at about a 7.5 as is; I don't know enough about cleaning and pressing to know how much that could improve it, but most of the bigger faults I'm seeing are bends/creases (lower right front cover and top left back cover)--so with those ameliorated I would think it could be an 8.0 or even 8.5.

Mind sharing the grading notes? I bet everyone would want to know what CGC found that we didn't see.

Looks pretty good in the slab.

That's a gorgeous 5.5. I like the custom label with it too.

I love this book. It took me years to find one believe it or not. Had a nice copy only to find out someone had color touched it up. Had to return it.

I believe it - this one is on my "if I had any discipline I could own that book" list - meaning, if I stopped buying anything else for a while and sold some good stuff, I could likely get a copy I'd be happy with. Alas, I have no discipline and no 129. Congrats on a great book!
