BTW, I'm leaving this link here since the conversation is remaining here but in the future please remember that outside links are only allowed when relevant to a conversation (not including links to active sales or auctions on other sites). Links like this posted by themselves are considered diversionary (e.g. an attempt to divert traffic away from CCL) and are generally deleted.

Re restoration of comics vs. restoration of other collectibles:

Part of the point, I think, in appreciating a "fully restored" automobile is the acknowledgment of its restoration (I think another part has to do with whether the parts used in restoration were original manufacturer parts or after-market parts).

And as someone has pointed out here, there is a difference between a restored auto and an auto that never deteriorated to the point of requiring restoration. I strongly suspect the collectible auto market would favor the latter over the former (in the unlikely event of two indistinguishable autos, one restored, one not, becoming available to collectors).

I have been made aware of a useful distinction observed by museums: the distinction between preservation and restoration. Each has its place. But when one is regarding a particular artifact, it is useful to know which category the artifact falls into.

This has always been one of the problems with CGC and their PR - they only discuss "negative" things on their chatboard, a conscious decision on their part. Did you ever hear about Ewart or PCS in Wizard or CBG? No. Was there ever any press releases that CGC would re-check Ewart books for free? No. The only way to discuss these issues is to link to the specific CGC thread, and that then in and of itself becomes a relevant conversation just by posting it. The president of CGC is posting in that thread, so it's definitely not your run-of-the-mill everyday BS. I'm just trying to get this info out to the hobby, as it affects many of us.
