Appreciate it guys. Figure do both here, not clutter up the place.

Stain on back of ASM is what it is. Overall, both books are very sound, structurally. Have already C&P'd them. The stains on the back of the TOS are not from the staples. Not sure what it is, so any ideas on that would be welcome. I do believe I've seen similar on another copy.

ASM 1 - 4.0/4.5

TOS 39 - 5.0/5.5

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks bud. Would love those grades!

Just wondering how much the staining hurts each. I feel like they might knock the ASM1 down to 3.5, and the TOS39 down to 4.0. CGC is "toight" right now with grading.

My (limited) experience, a lesser stain knocked a book that was clearly >9 otherwise all the way down to a 5.5. If they treat the rust from another book like an ink transfer, I can see it having less impact. I watched a CGC video recently that said ink rubs were treated more harshly that ink transfers, especially with older books where it was common for comics to be stack on top of on another without the benefit of bags/boards.

The ASM I would say is an easy 4.5.

The TOS is a little harder to pin down as I've never encountered only external staple rust stains like that - but I'm thinking 5.0 is the lowest it will be.

Appreciate it guys. Books are on their way to CGC tomorrow for the walk thru treatment, so anyone else want to give their grades a shot, I'll probably be posting up the grades in a week or so.

How did you get these two amazing books?

Picked up a small collection of pence books. Some Marvel, some DC, a lot of Alan Class reprints
