Worlds Finest #9 (march 1943) though the shot doesnt show the pedigree markings).

interesting E-bay listing here. its not the normal focus for the pedigree and may be the collection Oddball if it is infact part of the collection

Its a book from mid 1950.

 

the 1950 books were some with distributor marks, some without...

 

I kinda doubt it is an Okajima since it is so different contentwise than her other books.

Here's one that was on the market at Worldwide being sold as a raw VF+++, the scan on the right is the prior slab it was in at some point in the past.

adding the shadow to the list. "THANKS :)"

I'm debating contacting the seller and asking for a copy of the COA on the TC35 book. I agree its really outside the spectrum of what the OO collected

Were there any books in G- condition that had no markings on them? I have an All New #11 (1944) that the owner of Heroes comic shop in Fresno, CA told me was an Okajima when I bought it. 3/4 of the spine is split. I can post a scan if it will help.

@ @tricolorbrian yes some were in poor condition. most of these don't seem to be slabbed. im linking the fighting yank 23 as an example

 

oh and can you post a pic of your book and pedigree page "of you have one"

I think this is the lowest graded Okajima that I have ever owned.

OK, this part escapes my comprehension:

 

"and pedigree page "of you have one"

seriously doubt it. The '44 books were camp books and they have all had the same marking types. Unfortunately, I doubt there'd be one different book in the middle of the other identical books.

 

The camp books vary in condition, though I havent seen any THAT low (G-). Though I've seen some in VG+ condition or FN-ish.

I think he means if you have a scan/photo of your possible Okajima book to post it...

OK...I'll post it, but I don't know why that shop owner would lie about the pedigree. He wasn't even that interested when I asked to see the book, and I paid under guide for it. come to thin about it, he never gets excited about any purchases in his store...

Just did a look up.

 

All New #11 would be from '46 (maybe super late'45) .

 

So its possible since this would be post-camp (thus no -script, no code) and I think there were some books in this in between time (later books all have the distributor code) that dont have any markings... let me look.

 

Odds are better since its a 45/6 book.

Thanks. I thought it was '44, but what do I know...I was going by Gerber.

 

I'll pull the book today from the Crypt and scan it.

Thanks Brian :)

The Teen Comics 35 exhibits similar markings to the 2 examples I posted. The seller says it comes with a cert. I bet its a legit Okajima.
