First of all, Hi to everyone, I'm new to the forum.

I was reading this thread and wondering if all "defects" actually decrease the value of an item...

I have a Tsojconth that I purchased several years ago in a used bookstore, and I had no idea what I was buying at the time.  Apparently neither did the seller -- it has a light pencil mark on the front indicating the price of $1.95 (Canadian!).  Otherwise it's in excellent to near mint condition (I think).  It doesn't have the ziploc bag, and it has tiny dog-ears on the corners.

Technically the pencil mark is a defect, but it's so darn humorous to me that I'm sure it's got to add value... :lol:

Usually, writing decreases value, even if it is a price mark.

After reading all the replies here, I think I'm going to go with bbarsh.  
My thinking is thus.  If I received a three-hole punched Tsojconth would I be satisfied with it, or would I still be on the lookout for a better one?  And the answer is the latter.  I would still have it on my want list, so what use is it to have a version that is so defective that I wouldn't be satisfied with it?  As bbarsh said, it might as well have been torn in half.  
An old price sticker I could live with.  A stray pencil mark or a lightly written price in pencil, I could live with.  But a three-hole punch means a part of the module is missing and that I just couldn't abide.  
Oh well, thanks for everyone's input.   :D

Kind of like a Lamborghini with a huge keymark in the side.
