Certificates of Evaluation

I offer two Certificates of Evaluation. Cost for Certificates are as follows: $25 for Bronze Age and Silver Age and $35 for Golden Age. Front and back covers will be scanned in a database and entered into The Restoration Lab's permanent archive. Each certificate will have a serial number. Any book with a fair market value of $3,500 and up as determined by the most current Overstreet Price Guide will incur a charge of 2% of market value per certificate. This does not include postage and shipping with insurance back to the customer. Please note that neither service involves grading of the comic nor encasement in any holder. Please note that this service is my professional opinion with 20 years of experience handling, evaluating and restoring comic books.

      
Certificate of No Restoration/Original State   I will examine front and back covers and all interior pages for any restoration. It will need to meet a stringent 12 point criteria that I have designed to be declared as un-restored and in an original state. This certificate will display the name of the book, date and publisher. It will be dated and signed by me. Certificate of Restoration Detection   In the event that the book contains restoration, I will note all identified methods and locations. This certificate will also display the name, date and publisher of the book. It will be dated and signed by me. I will also offer my opinion if the work performed is considered amateur or professional.
