Do these count? The TTA seems to be an 8/31 delivery date, which might work for a December title. The Superman one isn’t as clearly a date. Could it be a Feb 5th delivery of the April publication date? I’m hoping to see a Dec 5 date someday in one of these threads...

That is a weird looking book-- extra long or something, eh? @Get Marwood & I

You might be looking at it on a phone or small hand held device Dude? It's normal size on a desktop - sometimes the boards formatting goes awry and compresses the width to fit the screen on mobiles.

wasn't on a phone--- maybe it was how you formatted the image-- the borders are a bit over the top and the website might have had to squeeze that image.

Take for instance this image I use (with date stamp naturally) --- very much streamlined comparatively - no extra boarder at all. I only asked because I am not familiar with that book and it occurred to me that it could just be a weird shape. I will definitely take your word for it.

This is what my post looks like on my phone:Screenshot_20200628-234108_Chrome.thumb.jpg.37134d3d0c779ff8322705cedebd8f3b.jpg

This is what it should look like:

It's not you it's the board software - it has a recurrent glitch. I've raised it but it's out of the admins control. Have to live with it until Invision fix it.

Note the small star stamp on the R --- military overseas PX was what I was told this shows

For the right time period the little star stamp was also a good indicator as to whether the book would have a Mark Jewelers insert. Far too early for this book though.

Ahh.  Thanks Dude.  I was wondering about this one.

The most hated stamp in my collection.  One of these days I'm going to buy an unstamped copy, but man alive, it's kind of expensive.

you never know-- someone might want it and trade you even up for their copy without a stamp. Many of us kind of covet and appreciate the stamps -- though on a key I can see you might be less enthusiastic.
