Modern comics, back cover dark spots from fingerprints, how much will this effect grade?

I was moving the comic into a bag and board, but I had somewhat sweaty hands. I realized that my fingerprints left dark spots like this. The spots are slowly going away, but some are still there after hours and may stay. If they do stay, how much would this effect the grade. (They are hard to see, but even harder to see in the photo)

The deduction amount of a given imperfection is usually relative to the overall grade WITHOUT the imperfection.  So the higher the grade otherwise, the more significant the impact.

IIRC, I have seen comics get as low as 8.0 for fingerprints, usually Moderns like this.
