    Thanks for the feedback guys....truth be told, I know it is real because King signed the book in front of me.....but it is a bit unconventional, and I wanted to see what members thought about it.

    I will post more pictures in the new P&J thread shortly.

    Well, in his defense, I was holding the book, and he was standing while he signed it.

    Looks great Rick, that was a fun trip, on par for recent signatures, the fact that he signed for all of us was awesome was happy to get my Stand and Shining Proof signed but great pick on your part on choosing the Comic Con Charlie especially with no Beryl Evans signature!!!!

    Hi guys,

    Apologies if this question has already been answered. A quick search turned up no results.

    Does the absence of glassine paper issued originally with a book (Danse Macabre - S/L, for example) diminish the copy's overall value?

    As always, I appreciate the feedback of this community!

    I believe as with any edition that requires a glassline... it does detract some value... yes.

    Glassine is easily purchased and cut to size.

    Im sure it is a collecting faux pas for purists (of which I am not), but glassine doesn't always age particularly well and there is nothing unique about it, so I have no issue at all with a replacement piece being added to a book which is missing it.

    Thanks, everyone, for the thoughtful replies.

    I definitely respect that, for some, the glassine paper was never kept with some of Mr. King's more collectable books post shipping. I see, too, that the paper itself can be easily replaced today. I just wasn't sure if, in the absence of the original paper, some books are sort of viewed as being defective. Seems like this could go either way based on perspective.

    Unlike other aspects of collectible books, the glassine paper isn't unique. Replacing it isn't really an issue if done well.
