Hi, all.  Welcome to the sixth installment of our Below Guide™ series!  This time around, we'll be offering a nice selection of extremely affordable Gold and early Silver from the walk-in vault of A-1 Comics.  Most will be priced at or below current Overstreet, and all are guaranteed to be unrestored (unless noted otherwise).  Payment to A-1 Comics may be by PayPal, Cashier’s Check, USPS Money Order, business/personal check (but please allow up to ten days for your check to clear), or cash (in-store pickup only).  Payment must be received within seven calendar days of being invoiced (unless other arrangements have been agreed to via PM).  All books will be shipped from A-1 Comics within three business days of your payment (fully insured with delivery or signature confirmation).  The exact cost of shipping will be added to your order.  Returns will be cheerfully accepted (provided that you alert me to the return via PM within one week of receipt), but the cost of shipping and return shipping will be on you.  International buyers are welcomed.  Miscreants, wankers, and folks currently on probation are not.

Post the :takeit: within the selling thread to claim your prize.  Happy hunting!  :foryou:

Duty calls, but I'll be back at 4:00 PM Pacific tomorrow (Friday) with another four-dozen or so very affordable Golden Age and Atomic Age books spanning a variety of genres.  Until then!  :hi:
