Even though Marvel Chipping is a Bindery Defect there is no black and white answer as to how much of a grade deduction a book will recieve with Marvel Chipping, it will depend on the severity of the chipping and the overall condition of the book.

I just saw a pic of an AF 15 that had the beginnings of Marvel Chipping with small tears on the outer edge but no real pieces missing, this book received a VF 8.0.

Looking at your book I feel it is in the FN/VF 7.0 range even with the water stain on the rear cover (which I heard CGC is very strict on) so with the stain and chipping, my best educated guess without knowing how CGC actually determines grades would be anywhere from a VG/FN 5.0 - FN 6.0.

I don't believe this would be considered Marvel chipping.  The shape of the missing pieces is unlike any example of true Marvel chipping I've ever seen.  But you be the judge:

In the eyes of CGC, the moisture stain may be as significant a defect as the missing pieces.  In order to define its extent, I'd want to inspect (1) the inside front cover & first page and (2) the inside back cover and last page.  If the moisture stain is limited to the back cover, I think you're looking at a maximum grade of 4.0 VG.  One man's opinion.  :foryou:
