Example of 0.5 (Poor)

/media/help/library/beano_21_poor.jpg

POOR (P) 

Well damaged and heavily soiled. Also incomplete and/or coverless comics. Not collectible unless it s something very rare or special. Very worn, torn brittle, water-damaged, basically a mess. There may well be a coupon cut, a panel or two cut out. If missing a page this should be noted separately (pin-up pages from American comics were often removed). All the above applied to British comics. This is basically a comic not worth having unless you feel it might be many years before you have a chance at purchasing another.
