Kudos to your 9.4. High grade pence copies are not easy to come by.

So what are values like on Pence books? I bought an X-men 129 Pence by accident one late night on Ebay. Say it's a 9.0, any idea of value?

The values are where it can get tricky. At one point, a pence copy was about 15-30% less than its cents counterpart. However, I have been seeing some pence books being listed at an equal price compared to a cents copy. The gap is a little more narrow on the key books. Maybe about 10% less. The thing to understand is that the pence price variants are still first prints. Generally speaking, they have the same indicia, advertisements, and were printed at the same time. The only thing was that a few plates were swapped out to put the UK price on there. Additionally, pence priced books only constituted 5% + or - of a given issue when it was made. And even less survived because even the Brits turned their noses up at them. Finding them in especially high grade (9.2 or higher) is difficult. I have an X-Men 129 as well, and I paid the FMV for a 9.2 raw copy. If I had to compare it to anything else, I would say the market is like the newsstand editions. There may not be many, but the ones who go out looking for these books will pay premiums for higher grade copies. It's a niche market, so if you were looking to sell the 129, it could take time, but it will sell. It took me quite a few months to sell a Captain America 241 pence copy. Trust me, the buyers are there.
UK Price Variant Resource, this is a good site with a fairly comprehensive list of books that have pence price variants for Marvel and DC.

Hummmm I have to disagree when I started collecting as a young lad in the late 60's early 70's I had to go from newsagent to newsagent to get my weekly fix of comic books and all were pence as that was all that was available in smaller towns in UK

Hold onto them. The values will continue to increase. One reason that values have been suppressed is that people don't know what exists or what they look like. As images of these become more common, more people will start collecting sets.

I could be wrong on that end. I'm basing that assessment off of a very small sample size (like 4 people) who didn't like the manufactured pence variants, but were ok with a cents copy with a newsagent pence stamp. I understand that was all that was available at times, but the "purists" would go after the cents copies.

You had your priorities in the right order. Now you just have to locate people who didn't and buy all their pence comics.

6 closer to my goal of a UK price variant X-Men run. What a labor of love to find decent copies.

Anybody happen to know anything about a pence version of Wolverine 1 (the mini series)? It looks like there are some on eBay but none sold, and I can't find an entry for it on either mycomicshop or the website that @Studley_Dudley linked to in this thread.
