Example of 9.9 (Mint Issue)

/media/help/library/x-men_140_9.9.jpg

MINT (M)

Perfect and as new, REGARDLESS OF AGE with full cover gloss and lustre with white, crisp pages. The pages must be white. Off-white or cream will not do. No printing or cutting defects, off-centre covers or staples. No marks on the cover whatsoever, not even distributor marks or stamps.

As with coins or stamps, MINT really means uncirculated or untouched and would be those immediately encased for presentation in some way. The true rarity of this grade cannot be emphasised enough.

While there are many examples of Mint American comics, there are far less British comics that would qualify for this grade.
