SPICY DETECTIVE Jan 1941

VG  ow-w pages.

1/2" tear top.

Piece out at foot of spine.

Front cover does not have much overhang on right, but this appears to be the case with other copies of this issue.

Staining back cover with some bug chew at edge.

Nice f.c. eye appeal and above average pages, but back really drags the grade down.

$285
