Thanks. Did you once own it ? Interesting that it was resubmitted (not me) and the grade stayed the same. I bought it from Dave Kapelka, who won it in auction, so I never knew the history.

Yes, I owned it for over a decade, and sold it through ComicConnect along with the entire ST Superhero run.

Looks like the book may have gotten pressed along the way.

At least the ink didn't smear.

Still looking for a #105

That #107 has the best centering that I have found on this issue: full stamp, full issue number's square and full circle lower right.

Here's what the Winnipeg copy looks like.  I love these early Kirby Torch covers:

Is that a super early Winnipeg?  For some reason, the only ones I really see are more Bronze than Silver.  Honestly didn't even realize it went back that early!

The Winnipeg pedigree goes way back, and has all the early Marvel keys.

This book was later morphed into a 9.2. Don't get me wrong, I like the Winnipeg pedigree, but with that top edge, 9.2 ? I don't think so.

All that, and no sign of chipping to boot.  Definitely one of the best copies out there. (worship)
