Poor, (G-), Good, (G+), (VG-), VG, (VG+), (NF), & Fine --there ain't no place for acceptable Trotter.

That aside, I think the term "acceptable" is the equivalent to the bottom of the grading scale i.e. poor. If this slipcase is not actually detached/split (which it looks like it might be), and only bashed, then it might correctly still be described as G; with qualification.

It is rare though. Well, so says that boy Peter...

If all those pages were blank --then yeh, bargain! But, the seller ain't wellnghall! (--& I'd hope he'd offer me that copy before bunging it on eBay.)

Yeh, I suppose that makes sense; all with the faux leather slipcases --nothing wrong with wanting tham all to look the same!
