We pride ourselves, on exceptionally tight, consistent grading
'that you can count on!
- Although we happily
sell to Dealers and Collectors Worldwide - our grading
standards are - without exaggeration - tight enough, that
we probably sell 75% of our inventory to our fellow dealers.
[(Many of whom, 'keep on coming back' - year after
year - as it is consistently, 'worth their while')!
(So to all you collectors out there, it's definitely
'worth your while' as well)].
ENOUGH TALK: Here's, some specifics:
(Fine/Very Fine) (most peoples' Very Fine - to, VF+)
- Very sharp copies; 'looks like new', or 'damn close'...
In most cases, our highest grade...
||VGF (Very Good/Fine)(most
peoples' FN+ or better) - sharp copies, with a tiny flaw
||VG (Very Good)
(many peoples' FN - to FN) - some wear, 'here and there',
but still - a pretty clean, solid copy.
||G+/ GVG (Good Plus
to Good/Very Good) (most peoples' Very Good
Minus to Very Good ) - Can have some creasing, & can look
like it was 'read': still, a 'very collectible grade'!
May also have some small tear(s), etc.
||FRG/ G- (Fair Good
to Good Minus)(most peoples' Good) -Somewhat more
wear than a G+ / GVG; may have some (but not lots) of tape
on it; could have a number of creases (although the book is
not 'ugly' by any means); may have a few small tears. Looks
like it was read a number of times; 'still a respectable
May have a 1" (or so) piece missing from the front (&/or
back) cover. Could have a 1"to 4" (or so) 'clean'
spine split. Can have many creases....- Although there are
a # of 'flaws' that can apply to this grade -it is still a
decent, 'together''reading copy' - (when you purchase
that FAIR' from G.D. Comics, that is!)
||FRPR/PR+ (Fair/Poor to Poor Plus)
Pretty 'hammered', but basically readable.
'You take your chances': May have a large tear through (or
piece out of) the book; may be brittle; etc.
