CONDITION GUIDE:

Some General Points    


The magazines are sourced from many different places. Vintage magazines may have an old-book smell.  When I receive them, if necessary, I store them in an environment designed to remove as much of this odor as possible. This can be for from 1 to 4 months prior to becoming available. The magazine is then placed individually into a protective Collectorline® bag and tightly stored with others in an enclosed space. Even so a magazine may still arrive with a slight musty odor. This may be eliminated by removing the magazine from the Collectorline® bag and spreading it open to air out for a few days. Do not place it back into the same bag after the airing.
All magazines of a certain vintage may show signs of aging to the pages. It is also common for there to be rusting and small marks around the staples in older Playboy issues. Bumping to the top and bottom of the spine is caused by how ex-subscriber copies were sent through the mail and is also fairly common.

Unless excessive, or combined with other problems, none of these points are considered a defect.

The magazines are free of writing on the front cover and pages unless otherwise stated. Even so If you intend to frame a cover, or even an internal page, please let me know and I'll advise before dispatch.

A specific grade level is applied to each magazine. EACH magazine is a one-of-a-kind
