Rom an original owner collection and has been well looked after. Amazing amount of cover gloss still present. Off white to white pages. Firm staples, very solid structure.
This comic was well looked after for over 40 years until I bought it a dozen years or so ago. Went through a stage of wanting a cents and a pence copy of every superhero Marvel.
Did pretty well but some very early monster titles became impossible to find. Got most of the superhero stuff though.This FF is a really nice book. The thinking is that of the three hundred thousand or so printed, probably no more than 2% or 6,000 were printed for the overseas market. Perhaps no more than half that made it to the UK.
They were probably printed first to warm the presses up and allow the inks to settle in so it is thought that the colours are brighter on many pence copies. Incredibly there is only 1 (one) pence variant copy listed on the CGC Census in 20 years of the service being available and its a 4.5 so this copy will instantly became the Highest Graded Pence Variant if you send it to CGC.
This is a rare and significant copy indeed at 7.5. And a great chance to own a Highest Graded copy of a key Silver Age Marvel.April 1964 and this is THE classic battle issue between The Thing and The Incredible Hulk and the first of many epic battles.
