Cover left midway down pressure creases. Upper right cover small cracks. Very slight wear to staples. This is the worst grade when it's acceptable to see tape repairs. 6.0-7.5 = fine to very fine minus While there can be wear, some minor creasing and other faults, a fine comic book usually has most of its cover gloss, and looks pretty nice at first glance.
It's more the sum of small faults (or one major one) that brings this book down from a higher grade. 8.0 = very fine Generally a very fine comic either is a near mint, with one nasty fault bringing it down, or a near mint, with a few minor faults bringing it down.
When you're comic book grading, you should be conservative. If in doubt between a near mint minus and a very fine, always presume it's very fine, and then the only surprises can be good ones. You can expect an otherwise very nice cover to have one corner with a crease, some spine stress marks, a little wear. But it's a really nice looking comic. This book has been in my personal collection for many years.It has been properly stored in an acid free, dehumidified environment. I have decided to sell my collection an d promise to grade them fairly and conservatively.
