I recently acquired a collection of Marvel Star Wars comics. They were are all in excellent NM condition. However several of the comics from the 20-30ish range had a black line drawn diagonaly through the UPC code at the bottom of the cover. I assumed the previous owner had done this for some reason so I ordered four of those issues again from an online dealer. Two of the comics I recieved didn't have the line and two of them had the same black line. What does that mean? Is it some wierd variation? Does this decrease the value of the comic? Any help on this would be appreciated.
