Is it okay to post a hardback book without a dust cover. This hardback is in excellent condition. I just wanted to ask. Thanks!

It's okay to post it.  It only has to include the dust cover if someone has it as their RC.

Yes, -- What Amy said:  this is from the help center:

Dust Jacket:

  • The DUST JACKET (this is not the same as the cover of a book) does not have to be included with a book at all, unless the requestor had this in their Requestor Conditions. 
  • So DUST JACKET condition cannot be considered as part of the condition of a book, unless there were Requestor Conditions on the request specifying that the dust jacket be included.
  • If the Dust Jacket was to be included as specified in the Requestor Conditions on the request, the Dust Jacket must meet the same conditions as defined for the cover, below.
