I have a book that came from a used book store or yard sale.  On the front cover, written in black marker, is written 50 cents.  Is this ok to post?  Other than that the book is in good shape.

Depends on how big and how bold the marking is.  One thing you can do is take a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol or hairspray on it and gently rub.  The marking could possibly be removed.

Yes, its OK to post. The guidelines specify that writing is not allowed on text pages. A price on the cover is fine.

What Sara said.  According to the swappability guidelines, writing on the cover does not make a book unpostable.
