Alan, that F.F. #3 is just stunning ! 893applaud-thumb.gif

 

Are there any back cover flaws bringing the grade down ? With only 2 copies on the CGC Census above a 9.0, it could be interesting if you ever decided to send it in...

The stresses are mainly on the front cover. 1375771-FF3back.jpg

The cover of FF 26 never seems to feature in any of the best cover lists but is my second favourite behind FF 3. I first saw a high grade FF 26 at the Nottingham (UK) show a long time ago - the detail with the little figures really caught my eye. It took me many years to get a copy with a white cover (without a mustard tinge).

Possibly because the building is out of proportion to the figures... which are out of proportion with each other... poke2.gif

 

I always liked that cover as a kid (still do)! thumbsup2.gif

This is the only FF book I have removed from a slab - I collected the rest before CGC. I bought this book (very old label, 8.5, OW/W) to upgrade my existing raw copy at that time. The latter was subsequently CGCed at 9.2 and sold. For my eyes, I kept the better book.
