Really? Where? Wasn't this collection found years ago (I think in Vancouver BC) or is this a new one?

Nevermind. Just saw the email.

I just emailed Patrick Shaughnessy inquiring about that. I'll let you know if he replies.

There's a very large Chinese population in Vancouver.

From Pat:

When things go up for sale it will be well publicized.

I am actively working on a master list, although people who know me well know it's probably going to be a while. In the meantime I'll post scans to the pedigree site, the boards and such.

For what it's worth of the graded copies:

354 (33%) are highest graded, of those 242 (22%) are one and only highest graded, and 71 tie with only one other book.
219 (20%) are second highest graded, of those 165 have only one copy higher.
453 (42.5%)have White pages
437 (41%). have Off-White to White pages

And less the 5% of the comics have been pressed.

Well, I still have one of the three second highest graded copies...




Note: CGC was in such a big friggin' hurry to claim bragging rights on this pedigree that ...at the moment... they still don't have the 9.6 copy logged into their Census (face-palm).

Canada was primary destination for many highly-educated and successful Chinese fleeing from Mao and the Cultural Revolution. Many of the older highly-educated Chinese immigrants in the States came through Canada (mostly Vancouver) initially.

Yep. I'm 1/2 Chinese. My grandfather came to Seattle via Vancouver.

Great to hear. Gives me extra time to unload some books. I'm sure the bidding will be furious.

Go figure. I sent in 2 copies of this book. I was thinking the Western Penn copy was 9.4/9.6 and the other 9.8. The Western Penn came back 9.8 and the other 9.6 dooh!

Got this one reholdered - this time with the pedigree notation. One of the few Crippen D copies that does not have the coding on the first page.

Large population or just one large Chinaman?

I don't think anyone has posted a New Hampshire book yet. I have a few raw New Hampshire's in the grading vortex as well. I am excited to get them back. They have some really cool covers.

New Hampshire books are easy to spot. They are all Westerns and have the last 2 digits of the year (and sometimes the month) penciled somewhere on the cover.
