Remainder marks vary from publisher to publisher. Some spray a speckled paint on the end of the pages, some put a stamp on one of the pages, some just mark the ends with a sharpie.

Whatever the mark is, it devalues the book, as it is no longer Fine condition, even though the book is otherwise perfect. Same with previous owner's stamps etc.

Remainder marks are look like random dots or streaks from a black or colored magic marker.The purpose of the remainder mark is when a store does not sell a book they mark the bottom or top edges.After putting remainder mark the books are sent to the distributors and then distributor will resell them.
