CGC estimated grade to be at least a 1.0 - 3.0, guaranteed & it's Signed by the late Stan Lee who just passed. It may or may not be unrestored, if there is restoration he said it would be like a slight trim of the edge of the paper to avoid further chipping and maybe a pen mark to fill in white cracks in the ink on the title, very minor. This is the X-Men #1 original 1963 ORIGINAL. CGC did say that having the book dry-cleaned and pressed would increase the grade a lot but I cant afford to do that right now but you are welcome to if you win... Signed by Stan Lee before be passed at age 95.
Note Stan Lee signed it not covering the art of the characters making it very rare, some books have it signed right over the art of the characters ruining the value so this is a rare find. Keep in mind that the Flash from the camera may be reflecting off the cover. The book is stunning and the cover amazingly clean and crisp given its over 50+ years old it is and you can see the flaws from the photo I posted of it but its still in decent shape considering. Finding this book (Published over 50+ years ago in of 1963) in this condition with NO restoration is tough, finding it in this grade for this price is nearly impossible.(If you want a guarantee that this book won't arrive restored then don't risk getting this one as it may be restored). Not posting it here because I'm in the photo and the video is too large to upload.
The over all book is amazing and minimal marvel chipping with moister as seen in the photo of the cover. It holds a high value. CGC warned me to not take the book out of the plastic bag as the spine and staples of these books are very fragile and could disconnect so handle with care.There are stains and water like crinkles as seen from the photos. Some soot dust that can be wiped off as well as seen in the photos as well. FYI: All sales are final.
