This has to be a QC issue.  I don't think I've ever seen this.

Yeah, I was just puzzling over that myself. I can't believe that I never noticed! I even started writing Restoration...

I saw few more restored books with the green labels too.  QC is in opioid crisis.

Really enjoyed this thread Sean.

Amazed a little tiddler like me won one book, let alone two with so many sharks in the pond. :insane:

Weird Science-Fantasy #29

Classic Frank Frazetta cover!

It's crazy how cheap I got this for, so I'm passing the savings on here. 

Price = $850

That book has never been pressed, and the corners are super nice. I bet it could be bumped. I'm crazy for letting this go, but again, I have bigger fish to fry!
