What a dramatic difference in color. :cloud9: I have noticed that reds fading to orange is quite common for Fiction House books.

The problem is

at least it's true for most of mine, that after I "upgraded" I then sold my under copy lol so I can't show both of all the rest :sorry:

Here is a progression. I think I am happy now. 


Wow. That is a progression! It's crazy the Fight masthead is that red - the few Fight comics I've had (all low grade beaters) have always been orange. The Magenta ink used in printing must be more susceptible to fading than the other inks. Even the purples in the bushes is more vibrant.

That could be a collecting focus on it's own - Fight comics with red mastheads.

Then there were my IH 180=181and 182 run, but that would take up too much room, as I upgraded 3 times on each, but I traded my middle copy of #181 (blue label 3.0) plus $325 for an ASM #300 cgc 9.8. So far so good I guess, hope the guy I traded with gets satisfaction too ^^ 

Nice. (thumbsu I had a copy, not  graded, and sold it on the bay a few years ago. (shrug)
