J X + x: [not] “finally”

Thanks for your help;   I just saw The Census, but ...    there is no second line    in the Set Score Details, and    the points value is the same.    Is this version, of this book,    worth MORE points?    How ‘scarce’...    are these,    in comparison,    to the rest of the printrun?    Isn’t this book,    more desirable than any of   the.. ‘regulars’?    Again, thank you for your attent

{... finally captured these ifcs, with this iP.}    So, I figured I would tip-off The CGCCS.  These two 2. (i.e., Two) comic books, by S. Clay Wilson, publ. by Keith Green, in 1975-6, have identifiers, namely price, that determine .. “State”.   I mean first state, compared to first printing.  Two States are:   1) printed .75 cent cvr. price, ifc.    2) printed, corrected/written-over, hand-written, “$1” price, ifc.   ... more on these later.  Good Luck,
