(1)>>> For SCANS of items priced US$0.01 to $19.99, we charge US$3.00 to defer some of the Costs of our Time & Effort.

*** $3.00 to by paid before scan is sent. [Additional Scans, in SAME email; add an extra $1.00 per extra scan];

** We accept VISA, American Express & MASTERCARD; -- OR -- Payments using PAYPAL are to be made to =

*** Items priced at $5.00 or LESS, NO credit applied, even if purchased;

*** Items priced at $5.25 to $10.00, we will give $1.50 credit toward that first item, (and $1 per extra item)

if you purchase the item(s);

*** Items priced at $10.25 to $19.99, we will give full $3.00 credit toward that item, (and $1 per extra item) if you

purchase the item(s);

(2)>>> For SCANS of items priced US$20.00 and UP = FIRST 1 to 3 SCANS are FREE, after that, please send

US$1.00 Per Scan; IF you buy the items, you can have future Free Scans; [ If you use up your 3 Free Scans

& do NOT buy items, FUTURE scans will cost $3.00 for First Scan & $1.00 Per Additional Scan in any price range];

** We accept VISA, American Express & MASTERCARD; -- OR -- Payments using PAYPAL are to be made to =

(3) >>> If you have NO intention of Buying the item, but would still like a SCAN;

PLEASE, kindly inform us UP FRONT if you are ONLY interested in a SCAN.We will be happy to oblige for a small & very reasonable fee, to cover some of our costs. Hopefully this will REDUCE the 100's of requests we get, from those who like to treat us as a Library, rather than a business that needs to make a profit. We do NOT mind helping out those that NEED scans, but PLEASE be FAIR to us too. THEN you will ALSO be more fair to the REAL BUYERS that actually want to make a purchase. We charge US$3.00 to defer some of the Costs of our Time & Effort.

*** $3.00 to by paid before scan is sent. [Additional Scans, in SAME email; add an extra US$1.00 per extra scan];

WHY do we Charge for SCANS?

Unfortunately, customers massively abuse this Privilege. About 85-90% of people who ask for scans of items under

$20.00, seemingly having pre-determined they are not going to buy the item. It seems they want a FREE image at our time & expense. Items priced over $20.00 do much better, as buyers are usually more serious & about 50-65% of items selling.

[Even more strangely, about 85% of items that we normally quote, sell without need of a Scan];

We need to cover PART of the Labour Costs.[Employee #1 reads email, then needs to PRINT & take the email to our warehouse, one block over; Employee #2 take the inquiry & goes into our 8000 sqaure foot warehouse to pull item off it's shelf; Employee #2 needs to physically deliver the item one block over, back to our Computer Offices; Employee #3 makes the Scan, then forwards it to Employee #1 via email; Employee #1 must Write an email about the item, add the Scan to the email & send it; IF (and usually WHEN), the item is NOT purchased, Employee #1 must then make the return trip with item, back to our Warehouse one block over; Employee #2 must then goes BACK into our 8000 sqaure foot warehouse to physically replace the item back on it's shelf; >>> This Process takes 10-20 minutes of our time. Even at $3.00 per item, we often lose both time & money making Scans. The $3.00 shows that you have a More Serious interest in the item & that you UNDERSTAND that you will be using up some of our time & that you are KIND enough to at least contribute to our COSTS for this Privilege; NATURALLY, if you turn out to be a Serious Buyer, we will return some or ALL of the small fees for making scans; Thus it remains more of a Privilege & NON-PROFIT (if not money losing) Service to our customers. Thank You kindly, for your Understanding on this matter. We like to & do spend our TIME giving our actual Customers, the BEST SERVICE possible.

BETTER than MOST items when still Brand NEW on the Newsstands; MOST Brand New comics on day of release are not this high in grade. IF you get to hand-pick the BEST copy availiable out of about 50 copies upon day of Release, you will likely have a NM+; [ current market value of a CGC graded 9.6 NM+ copy, is about 4-10 Times Guide 9.2 price] - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - NM = (9.4 Near Mint); This grade is NO LONGER listed in the Overstreet Annual Guide, due to the scarcity. [9.2 is currently the TOP guide grade] NM copies are almost LIKE NEW, & almost flawless. Most 1976-1985 items are SCARCE in this grade, if Strictly graded. Most 1975 & Older items are RARE in this grade, if Strictly graded. [Most 1975 & Older Non-Marvel/DC Super-Hero comics are VERY RARE in this grade, MANY with NO KNOWN copies in 9.4 condition]; We Rarely use this grade on our regular inventory, even on Original Un-Used Warehouse copies. [Unlike many dealers who incorrectly throw the grade around like they are common. If another dealer is NOT charging a premium for this grade, it is probably not a "True" NM]; Even MANY

older Pedigree collection & File copies are not this high in grade [Most older File-Copies are more in the 9.0 condition range];

>>> Essentially in Hand-Picked AS NEW, Never Read, Never handled & immediately Bagged and BOARDED Condition; With only the tinest of Flaws, usually not apparent to the Un-Trained Eye.

Most of our Un-Read Original Warehouse copies fall in this catagory, usually with only minor shelf wear. [ This is the AVERAGE grade for an UN-Used condition example, or moderately well cared for, comic & magazine of the 1980-1990 period. Most 1980's Collectors did NOT use STIFF Back-Boards with their comic bags on 1985 & older

comics, thus many small flaws have accumulated on MOST copies on the market & even in MOST Original Owner collections]; *** [ Many inexperienced sellers, VERY commonly Mis-Grade FN/VF or VF copies as NM or "Mint" on eBay; Many INCORRECTLY assume if they bought it new & are Original Owner, it has to be "Mint"]; A Scarcer "High Grade" for most 1975 & older item's; - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - VF- (7.5) VERY FINE minus; - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - FN/VF = (7.0) FINE to VERY FINE; a Beautiful & WELL Above Average example on most items over 20 years old.The beginning of "Higher Grade" for most items 1975 & older.

Still relatively attractive & NOT De-Faced. NO big chucks out, or NO severe damage. Minor to Moderate amounts of Magic tape Repairs are common & often present in this grade, but should not detract too much from the "Look"

or appeal of the cover.
