Guess the grade?

15 posts in this topic

Here's one for you guys and gals to test your grading skills.

There is a member of the forums that already knows the grade, so I would ask that this member please not give an answer.

 

Avengers 11

Pages are Off White

The only defects are, a light touch of wear on the lower left corner. The other corners are razor sharp.

There are a couple of extremely light stresses on the bind. We're talking small and very hard to see.

The top has a slight "Overcover", but nothing is stressed. It is just slightly curled around the top of the book.

The back is beautiful with a few more very very light stresses. Again, very hard to see.

 

The colors are bright and vivid. No wear or foxing showing anywhere on the cover.

 

Here's the scan. Linked due to size (500k).

Hey. There's only two chips on the right side.

Sorry, I did forget to mention that.

Good eye, Shotz.

 

The larger is even with Thor's elbow on the right side of the book.

The other is very tiny and in Giant Man's foot.

Anything else that looks like a chip is just a defect in the scan.

 

Thanks for noticing that! 893applaud-thumb.gif

Did you call and get the grader's notes on it?

 

I didn't.

But I will on Monday morning.

You can bet on it.

I can't see why this book is an 8.5.

I'll let you know what the grader notes are on Monday.

 

Regardless, this has to be the nicest looking CGC 8.5 of this book that exsists.

It must have been the end of a long hard day when this book was graded.

I think it would regrade an easy 9.2 to 9.4.

It's as nice as many Silver Age 9.4's I've seen.

It looks a easy 9.2 but without seeing the back its all guesswork from there.Nice front cover though!
