Where does one just find Northfords? :bigsmile:

This one’s label is interesting as my Northford has the same notation regarding transfer stains. Was that common in this Ped?

 

I’ve never seen that on a label before.  I think these days they probably just put something like that in the graders notes.  I wonder if transfer stains are common in Harvey’s?

My understanding of a transfer stain is that through moisture or humidity, the cover inks of one book transfers onto another when stacked together. So more to the conditions in how the books were stored. 
 

Edit to include:
Theoretically, if the comics were tied and bundled quickly after originally printed, the inks still being moist could then transfer to the book in front and in back of the stack.
