Conan #4 CGC 9.6 CGC Signature Series comic book from Dark Horse Comics, which has been signed Joseph Michael Linsner, the cover artist.
It has been professionally graded by CGC, the largest independent comic grading company in the world, and slabbed in a sealed protective case.
The grade is guaranteed to be high investment grade 9.6 (NEAR MINT+) and this is a yellow label CGC Signature Series, which means that an authorised CGC representative witnessed the signing and this also acts as a Certificate Of Authenticity.
As soon as the comic is signed, it is removed by a CGC authorised party and submitted straight to CGC for grading and encapsulation, guaranteeing the authenticity of the signature.
You can check the validity of this item and the signature by entering the 10 digit number on the label at the CGC web-site at www.cgccomics.com
There is a minor crack inside the top right outer edge of the case which does not affect the condition or the grading of the comic and it is priced accordingly. It can be repaired at CGC if required and the latest pricing can be found on their web-site.
Any glare is just the scanner on the CGC case, which can cause reflection.
