I have also inspected it closely to make sure it is authentic and I see no evidence that it is faked, or a reprint. It has all the typical signs of aging that is common to a 70 year old comic book. It has a little bit of staining at the bottom of some of the back few pages and I don't know if it's from water or what, but if you look at the back page it is slight. It has a small piece missing at the lower right corner of the back cover, otherwise no other paper is missing on entire book. The spine has a small amount of chipping and is attached.
There are no cutouts in book. Inside pages are creme colored, but colors are very good. Condition of inside pages is represented by photos. Color on front and back covers is good also. The item "Golden Age Captain America Comic Book issue #52" is in sale since Tuesday, November 5, 2019.
