Thanks, Marwood! Although I'm a bit disappointed they don't exist, it is a relief to have fewer books to hunt for.

I've seen a pence FF1 & 3 and for some reason a few different  6ers but I've never seen a 2 before. (thumbsu

The only two, pence copies I have from my recently completed Surfer run. The #12 is probably the best condition SA (pushing it a bit) book I own.

That number 12 is a beauty :cloud9:

I've found only 8 pence Surfers - numbers 11 to 18:

I've had raw SS 13 & 14. Sold them when I upgraded.

The only CGC slab I've ever had was an 8.0 pence #14 as well. Sadly, you'll have to take my word on that one. I sold it over a year ago and can't find any scans of it. On the census it was listed as the joint highest pence copy, not hard to do I suppose with the relative scarcity of those copies.

I believe you Harry. Being an ex Spidey completist I used to have a pence SS 14 too, but it was a raw copy. Nice condition as I recall. I've got thousands of pictures of everything I used to own but lost all my appearance scans alas.

It do! I got the image from Heritage which, despite being a US based company, is a great resource for high quality pence images. Many of the scans in my pence inventory came from their site.

Are you a pence collector then @woowoo ? The X-Men #1 is a cracker :headbang:

A couple of late SA/early BA pencey FF's. Wow, it's been a while since I looked at these, I really need to upgrade.

Even though that works out to only $2 a pop, it sounds like an almost insurmountable amount of work would be required in order to get your money back  out.

Since I am the lazy type of collector, I would much rather pay this kind of money for say 100 vintage quality books that would have no problems selling themselves in this current robust marketplace.  hm

I didn't realize the 1 minus was also a UK price variant, I have a bunch of those too.  :nyah:

Ok, you asked for it. I have almost run out of themed books but as my sig kinda indicates I can specialise in low grade pence copies, especially when it comes to the FF.

First up is the book that forever changed how Marvels were displayed in the newsagents. In my case it was probably attached to a lawn strimmer first.

Fabulous! You're my kind of guy Harry. Beaten up pence copies cannot be beaten!

hm

Having been beaten that is. You know what I mean. 

I have another Gunsmoke Western on the way hopefully, and that will make your FF 14 look positively gem mint. Maybe we should have a competition for most beaten up pence copy.....

Stick around Harry! :headbang:

 

OK @Harry Lime, do I win or what!

Erm, yeah, it seems a little worse than mine. It looks like the cover has attacked the price mark, I can't see it anywhere. ???
