GRADING - CONDITION:
Back cover neatly sliced off this otherwise complete and high grade issue. Thus best grade available is F-G or 2.5/10 due to missing back cover and missing pieces along the spine, but otherwise pretty issue would grade VG-EX or 4.5/10 if complete with: the year written in pencil at the top of the front cover; a couple of areas of scuffing along the cover seen at each the left and right side of the cover girl's face; some soiling/foxing along edges of front cover as shonw. On the plus side there's a lot to like about this issue, all on the inside really, the issue is tightly bound with clean inside pages--inside pages are pretty much mint.

All items that I offer for sale are vintage and date to whichever date is mentioned in the title and/or listing.

PAYMENT:
Payment accepted from the U.S. and around the world through PayPal. Prompt payment expected within a week at most, immediate payment most appreciated. If you require longer than a week feel free to write, I'm pretty loose as long as there's communication.
