COMIC BOOK GRADING STANDARDS - CPG/CGC
GM - Gem Mint [M+: 10] The best possible existing condition of a comic book. They are very rare, especially in older comic books pre-1990. Books in this condition pre-1980 are virtually non-existent.
M - Mint [M: 9.9, M-: 9.8] An extremely exceptional comic book with only minute printing or bindery defects. The book's cover is flat and without surface wear. Cover inks are exceptionally bright with high gloss. The book's corners are perfectly square and sharp. Staples are clean and shiny. Interior pages must be white in color and supple to the touch.
NM+ - Near Mint+ [NM+: 9.6] This grade is close to mint with some minor defect. You can tell that this comic has been stored properly and looks as new as the day it was printed. There may be a slight stress line by the staples but the staples themselves are generally centered clean with no rust. Some of the color may have chipped or flaked off the cover. The cover is flat with no surface wear and the inks are bright with high reflectivity and very little fading. Corners will be cut square and sharp with ever so slight blunting permitted. All stress marks should be almost invisible and bindery tears must be less than 1/16 inch. Only the most subtle binding and/or printing defects are allowed. The cover will be fairly well centered and firmly secured to the interior pages. Paper is supple and like new. Spine is tight and flat. Unobtrusive date stamps or arrival dates in pencil or ink are acceptable. Many pedigree collection comics have a notation on the cover or the interior of the comic and are considered a bonus to collectors as they help prove the provenance of the comic.
NM - Near Mint [NM: 9.4, NM-: 9.2] This is a nearly perfect comic book with great eye appeal and no apparent obvious defects. It is vibrant and clean with supple pages. Cover has high gloss, is relatively flat, with almost no surface wear. Cover inks are generally bright with medium to high reflectivity. Spine is almost completely flat and tight. The staples may show some discoloration. Older comics may have some discoloration due to aging. Inside pages and covers will usually be off-white to white but can be creamy or slightly yellowish. Permissible defects could include very small stress lines (up to 1/4 inch) near staples, minute corner creases, small binding or printing defects.
VF/NM - Very Fine/Near Mint [VF/NM: 9.0] Slightly better than the Very Fine conditions below but in lesser condition than the grade above.
VF - Very Fine [VF+: 8.5, VF: 8.0, VF-: 7.5] A very fine comic book is a really nice book that appears to have been read a few times but handled with care. Additional minor defects are allowed. Visually there is most of the original cover gloss with minimal surface wear and a near flat cover. There may be small corner creasing, small fold on cover, very minor corner, edge, or spine wear, slight wrinkles at the staples and slight staple discoloration, light cover creases, minor stress marks on spine, a few small chips on the cover (Characteristic Marvel chipping is a good example). interior paper may be off-white. Overall, an exceptional and very collectible comic book.
FN/VF - Fine/Very Fine [FN/VF: 7.0] Slightly better than the Fine conditions below but in lesser condition than the grade above.
FN - Fine [FN+: 6.5, FN: 6.0, FN-: 5.5] Fine comics are well read, very desirable issues. They may have one major defect such as a larger piece out of the cover (1/4 inch to 1/8 inch) or a one inch plus tear. They have stress lines around the staples and creases from opening and closing of the cover. Interior pages may be off-white to yellowish in color. There could be a reading or subscription crease or a rolled spine, but is not damaged enough to reduce eye appeal dramatically. Some discoloration, fading in colors, and even minor soiling is allowed. The cover and/or insides could have minor tears and/or folds. The cover can be loose from one staple but cover cannot be detached from the interior. Pages and inside covers could be brown but not brittle. There is generally an accumulation of minor defects such as corner dings, minor creases, light spine wear, stress lines around the staples, and rounded corners. Sometimes a comic book that appears to be a higher grade has a major defect that will bring it down to a fine grade.
VG/FN - Very Good/Fine [VG/FN: 5.0] Slightly better than the Very Good conditions below but in lesser condition than the grade above.
VG - Very Good [VG+: 4.5, VG: 4.0, VG-: 3.5] This is a very well read comic but is complete. It may have a major defect such as a large piece out of its cover (1/2 to 1/4 inch), or a one inch plus tear. There is generally low cover gloss or almost none at all. The inside paper quality is not great, yellowing, with small pieces missing. Pages and inside covers could be brown but NOT brittle, with minor tape repairs. One or both staples may be loose but the cover cannot be completely detached. Comic books in these grades have minor tears, corner creases, minor markings, discoloration, and heavy stress lines around the staples and spine or even a rolled spine. They are almost always creased, scuffed, abraded, and soiled. Pages and inside covers could be brown but NOT brittle, with minor tape repairs. Tape on the comic is considered a defect in this grade.
GD/VG - Good/Very Good [GD/VG: 3.0] Slightly better than the Good conditions below but in lesser condition than the grade above.
GD - Good [G+: 2.5, G: 2.0, G-: 1.8] Good is really misnomer. Good is a readable, complete issue with the cover having numerous defects. All of the defects present in a VG comic book plus more such as major creases, rolled spine or a missing a 1/2 inch piece, rusty staples, scuffs, abrasions, and soiling. A good book is complete with no missing pages and is still in a "Collectible" grade.
FR - Fair [F: 1.0] A fair condition comic is heavily worn and tattered. All pages will be present and most of the covers. Large pieces may be missing from either front or back cover. There will of course be heavy creases and folds. The spine and/or cover may be completely split. Staples may be missing. Corners are rounded. Coupons may be cut from cover and/or inside pages. Panels inside may also be clipped out. Paper quality can be very low being dark tan with brittleness being a factor. The centerfold may be loose or missing and the soiling, staining, tears, markings, or chunks missing will interfere with reading. Moderate to extensive amounts of tape is acceptable on a comic in this grade.
P - Poor [P: 0.5] A poor condition comic book has major defects to the point that there is little to no collector value. Issues in this grade typically will have pages and/or around 1/3 or more of the front cover missing (due to distributor returns). there may be severe stains, mildew or heavy cover abrasion to the point where cover inks are gone. Other defacements include paints, varnishes, glues, oil, dyes, indelible markers, pens, or crayons. Also prevalent are large tears, taped pieces or whole pages missing. The inside pages can have extreme brittleness.
No Grade (Coverless/Covers/Pages or Single Wrap)
This designation is only used for the purpose of authentication. Numerous collectors and comic fans will purchase coverless comics to either read or to obtain a filler copy of a book for their collection. Coverless books will typically sell for a percentage of the good condition value. Rare and key comic books that are coverless in many cases may sell for a percentage of guide value depending on the specific comic title and issue number. Typically lower then the .5 value, but can fluctuate based on market value.
Comic Books can been coverless or be an incomplete partial comic (i.e. wraps). Issues in this designation typically will in most cases be beyond collectibility to the majority of the hobby. Rare key comics and incomplete pages i.e. centerfolds are considered to be valuable for either restoration purposes or for individuals who just wish to own a piece of comic history.
