As a cost effective guideline, books should be worth at least $500 in their present condition.
Pre-screen charges: minimum of $5 and any book valued above $1000 will be 1% of FMV which will be rolled into pressing charges. There is also a $5 charge to crack books out of CGC slabbed holders and $5/book per submission to CGC.
Cleaning involves simple, very light dry erasure in white areas of book, front and back covers within CGC/CBCS guidelines for Universal Label. Pressing involves local and intact pressing on covers and interior pages. Quick turnaround for more valuable books.
Golden, Silver and some Bronze Age Books.
