Here is a picture of one of my darker charcoal colored 1970 Topps cards for a color reference.

When I purchase it, along with some others, being a fake didn't even cross my mind as I just assumed it was real. It cost me peanuts, and like you, JollyElm, I also don't think it is fake as I personally don't see someone going to the trouble for that card.

Mine isn't as dark as some posted here, MT, so you're likely right that mine isn't one you are referring too?

Default 1957 #380 Cooper

Notice the red mark in the upper left area, even with the top of hist cap. This is recurring and there were at least 5 on COMC. I did not check eBay.

I put my 1970 Charcoal borders in the BST section. I also added a bunch of eBay like comedy to the listing for your reading pleasure.

Default Black dot above Mick's hat on border?

Being since I have noticed this on a few cards, I assume the black dot/ink mark above Mick's hat on the upper border is common knowledge?
Some have it, some don't.

Any reasons/info why and does it hurt value any?

Has this never been discussed before, or has it been discussed to death already?
I have always loved this card and would like to purchase one sometime soon (if that's a current great idea?) so that is what I noticed while educating myself.
I did do a search about the black dot but came up with nothing. I know the Mays and Robinson printing dots/spots on the 52's have been talked about, discussed before, but I couldn't find anything about this Mantle one?
