I enjoy visiting this thread every few days, in case someone posts a June 12 stamp...I hold out hope I will see one and then try to haggle with the owner to part with the book lol

Any particular year? I can keep an eye out. I currently have two June 13, but no June 12 at the moment. 

I have a spreadsheet of my date stamps in case someone needs one.

No my birth year is 1989 which I don’t care much for. Anything from 70s or older works for me:)

No, but I'm still looking. There weren't any comics released that day the year I was born, but I've found May 8 and May 10 that year in the wild. My hope is that someone received a May 8 book a day late. I've seen it before, just not with the date I need. For example, I've seen a May 10 book from that year with both May 10 and May 17 date stamps. So it's possible!

 

I have seen May 9 from other years though.

While I wait to reunite with my date-stamped AF15, and hoping to find a May 9 date stamp for Crimbuster, i found this among my Spideys.  Close but not quite.  :(  Either forgot I had it or overlooked it.  I should keep an actual list of my date stamp books from now on.

Anybody ever seen this one? I am thinking it might be from the BX at Yokota air base in Japan

Never seen it before but google search found ONLY this relating to an exchange:   "Yokota Air Base Exchange Food Court"  https://www.military.com/base-guide/yokota-air-base/contact/exchange-food-court/15487

I think that might be it!!!   Satisfy the body w/ some food, then the mind w/ some comics...makes perfect cents!

Very nice!

I should specify for me, I'm specifically looking for 1973. I have seen May 9 from other years, but 1973 is what I'm looking for. It will just have to be a book released the day before that someone was late to stamp. 😁

I have to share more here. I have some on the back of a lot of comics which I don’t find as neat but I respect wherever did that for putting them in an unobtrusive spot. That being said I still prefer them on the front for displaying purposes:)

So for the Silver Age, what proportion of books were date stamped (and store stamped, if not the same answer)?   If it was usually just the book on top of a newly arrived stack at a newsstand, and only some newsstands engaged in that practice, I am gathering less than 5%?   Perhaps a lot less than that?
