I'm trying to be good. This was one of my last big buys from an across the street member.

I need to sell more stuff, because I got a speeding ticket on the way home from work. Apparently saying that I was in a hurry to take a dump wasn't good enough for just a warning.

May that officer know extreme personal duress at some point during his on duty time.
If forum had poop emoji I would insert here....

Oh, no! Sorry that happened. It's a crap feeling, n.p.i.

That's a nice looking Avengers 24. I especially like the color. Only thing I don't like about silver age Marvels is the page quality, in general. But that one really pops! I can't tell from here how tight the cover is ... is that top staple a bit loose? Do you reckon it's about a 7.5 or 8.0? Love the color.

I find I'm particularly interested in comics that I've bought and graded and sold before. I've never read those early Avengers, but seeing the #24 I really sit up and notice. I wonder why that is? Some sort of affinity for comics I've owned before...

Thanks! The cover is still tightly attached, and the pages are off white, along with the back cover. There is enough wear on it to make me think it would be in the 7.0-7.5 range. A proper press wouldn't hurt it either. The colors are sharp, even on the interiors. I've found the pence copies of SA and even BA Marvels take on a little more wear than their cents counterparts. Part of it, in my opinion, is the pence copies weren't as desirable, even to UK collectors. I've been lucky enough to find some in nice condition.

@Studley_Dudley correct. I'm from Australia and everyone turned up their nose to a pence copy. Rather the u.s. cover price copy.
Even to go as far as including the Australian cover price copies in early 90s as less desirable then U.S. cover price books

I wondered how they'd react to that excuse. Now I'm wondering how they react if you said that you were in the process of taking it because he stopped you.

My brother had the opposite happen. He stated a cop pulled him over, and then said forget it. I have to go to bathroom. Brother counted himself lucky.

Cop: "You could have an accident going that fast."
Studley_Dudley: "I could have an accident if I don't!"

If only. He gets the occasional pence book in due to the Air Force base being down the road. He gets collections from service members rotating in and out from overseas. Gets the mark jeweler variants in too. Anyways, he told me that I spend enough there and could just have it. I look at it as a way of maintaining positive LCS-customer relations.

@Studley_Dudley - Mike, he should roll out a red carpet when you show up for how many comics you post here each week!
