Nice copy. Most of the ones I've seen are pretty beat up.

@Byrdibyrd thanks, picked it up at one of my lcs that hadn't gotten anything new in for awhile and they had $10 on it and I loved watching the TV show when I was a kid. 👍

@southerncross That receipt is very cool! March 7, 1970.

@GAC thanks, it was bought by my lcs when he was in San Diego comic con and the book was bought off a vendor there called Lone star which eventually would become mcs.

Due to the receipt I've never had the book graded and never will and just keep the receipt docket in there.

I just wonder what the original purchaser of the book bought for the other 24c now.
Maybe a soda or a candy bar?

No tax either for some reason

At that time, periodicals were not taxed, and if the other charge went for a snack, those weren't taxed, either.

@southerncross - Back in 1970, you could by a 12-ounce glass bottle of soda for 15 cents. A candy bar would be 5 to 10 cents, and there were still penny candies like the little Tootsie rolls and Mary Jane taffy candies. So that $ 0.24 is a mystery. According to records, March 7th was a Saturday, so it couldn’t be the Sunday newspaper (there was a total solar eclipse that day too!). The world may never know. Back then, lots of places sold comics. Practically every corner drug store did (there were no chain drug stores), and every few blocks you’d see another local drug store.

Skin mag.

Still a periodical, so no tax.

@Byrdibyrd - Those were around 35 to 75 cents (and yes, I was too young to buy them anyway). A pack of cigarettes was about 35 to 40 cents, and would likely be taxed. One of the places I bought comics from had a soda fountain. Maybe a cone of pistachio or maple walnut ice cream (popular flavors from that time)?

I believe I was 6 years old at the time, so yeah, a bit young for skin mags. A fountain bevvie like a shake or malt might explain that charge, too.

... Now I want a shake, dammit.
