Let me know if anyone is interested in doing some Whitman DC variant trading.  I have a bunch of duplicates (low to mid grade) which I would happily trade for ones I need.  I have 62 duplicates and still need 65 of the 169 Whitman DC variants.

Found a cool new DC Whitman 3-pack.  I've never seen Action #505 or LSH #261 in a DC Whitman 3-pack before!  Whitman quality control is on display here, with the middle comic inserted upside down! lol
Sadly, the top flap is trimmed. But from the remnant still visible and the timeframe, I think it would have been one of the "Super-Heroes" flaps.
I've included a sample image mockup of my guess to show how it might have looked with the top flap intact.


Contents:
Action #505
Legion of Super-Heroes #261 (middle)
DC Comics Presents #19

This pack mimics the contents of the newly found 3-pack with the same three titles and is from about two months later.  This type of 3-pack had no flap, so no trimming here!

Contents:
Action #507
Legion of Super-Heroes #263
DC Comics Presents #21 (middle)
