Alan, that F.F. #3 is just stunning ! 893applaud-thumb.gif

 

Are there any back cover flaws bringing the grade down ? With only 2 copies on the CGC Census above a 9.0, it could be interesting if you ever decided to send it in...

The cover of FF 26 never seems to feature in any of the best cover lists but is my second favourite behind FF 3. I first saw a high grade FF 26 at the Nottingham (UK) show a long time ago - the detail with the little figures really caught my eye. It took me many years to get a copy with a white cover (without a mustard tinge).

Possibly because the building is out of proportion to the figures... which are out of proportion with each other... poke2.gif

 

I always liked that cover as a kid (still do)! thumbsup2.gif

This is the only FF book I have removed from a slab - I collected the rest before CGC. I bought this book (very old label, 8.5, OW/W) to upgrade my existing raw copy at that time. The latter was subsequently CGCed at 9.2 and sold. For my eyes, I kept the better book.
