Values are usually given in Good (2.0), Very Good (4.0), Fine (6.0), Very Fine (8.0), Very Fine / NM (9.0) and NM- (9.2) and Overstreet provides descriptions for those grades.
That’s fine as Fair (1.0) can be estimated as half of the good value and points in between 2.0 and 9.2 can be worked out e.g. vg/fn (5.0) the mid-point of the 4.0 and 6.0 values.
One problem emerges when you try and price comics that grade as 9.4, 9.6 and 9.8, the values can escalate rapidly and be beyond estimating from this source.
Some US dealers now also report that values for key books (e.g. Hulk # 181) around Vg and Fn grades might now be under-priced as collectors are desperate for copies and those valuations appear relatively cheap to Vfn to Nm options.
The Overstreet guide also makes no reference to UK priced editions, this might have to change in the near future as more US collectors might now be realising that they are legitimate price variants. For example back in 1962 if 500,000 copies of Amazing Fantasy # 15 were printed with a 12c price box the last 100,000 of that run had a 9d price plate to export them to the UK (the indicia would also be altered and the Month removed from the date box).
Many other price variants are flagged up in the guide and a PREMIUM value listed. A US dealer has just reported that a high grade 6p copy of Iron Man # 55 (1st Thanos) has sold for $2000.Read more ›
