I'm curious, the covers look strange, like the printing underneath them is showing through. Seems like a very noticeable and major flaw, yet they are both extremely high grades for such old comics. Why wouldn't that severely lower the grade of these comics?

If the books were raw and you held just the cover up to the light you'd be able to see through it -- it would be transparent.
CGC puts a sheet of microchamber paper between the front cover and the pages and the back cover and the pages.
This paper is very white and more reflective than the newsprint of the comic. This reflective quality does tend to make the cover seem more transparent on older comics.
I try to imagine my collection as what could sit on the bookcase shelves of a slightly compulsive teenage boy who collects every Marvel, circa Christmas 1965. The collection would sit in neat piles beside a ball glove and an Aurora model of the Mummy.
My IF 14 is like that. BEcause of the white cover, even before it was slabbed you could very clearly see the interior page thru the cover. In hand, you can easily read every single word of the interior page.
