I have a question regarding book conditions. I have a book that was a former library book which someone cut the library stamps out of. The first two (non-text) pages have a 1.5 by 1.5 inch section cut out of the bottom corner. The first page also has a 2.75 by .5 inch cut across the top corner. Does this make the book non-postable, or is it OK sice they are non-text pages?
I'd say postable because former library books are specifically allowed and the purpose of those cuts (on non-text pages) is to remove the stamps. Some libraries have even cut out the flyleaf page that held the RFID, and that has been determined to be postable.
I recall a thread about it. I'll go look.
ETA - seems to be a grey area
Maybe a question to the PBS Team for clarificaiton would be in order?
ETA2 - if they're non-text pages, maybe you could remove them (still controversial)

The guideslines also say "no missing text pages" which means that non-text pages CAN be missing.
Yes, IMO, since the pages can be missing completely and the book would be POSTABLE .... I think it is fine that they have cuts on them. If you want to make the book 100% postable, then neatly remove the pages.
I just mailed one today that had one single water damaged page (a blank one at the end of the book). None of the other pages were damaged at all, even the slightest. I sliced it out and mailed the book.
