NO 1 Beano July 30 1938 - Advice Needed.

Hi all,

Just looking for some advice.

I've recently been given an old Beano comic - which turns out to be the above issue.

It's in pretty good condition and I don't think anyone realises that it appears to be the very first issue of the Beano and may be valuable.

Is there any way I can confirm that this is a genuine first issue or merely a replica or copy?

Any help much appreciated.

How were you "given it?" did someone come up to you in the pub and speak out of the side of his mouth "Want a vintage Beano, moosh? 25 sovs to you." Around here we have a chinese girl who comes in the betting shop with hooky dvds. We may scoff but perhaps he does have a genuine original.

Nobody has scoffed - just pointed him to a thread that answers his very reasonable questions quite thoroughly - and one day he may return to thank us.

But wouldn't it be great to stroll into a car boot sale where some old granny is selling a mint set of comics like this for fifty pence a bundle?

I've come across some pleasant bargains in my time. At a jumble sale a few years ago I got a brand new suit for 25p. Trousers didn't fit but jacket was superb. (No I didn't offer them twelvepence halfpenny for just the jacket).

Yes the riot police were called when they offered me the jacket for 13p but I insisted on paying 12p - they finally settled on 12p but then I blew it by asking for a carrier bag and was frogmarched out of the hall :)

Or as Spike would have said: "I left with my head held high, and my feet held higher."

Or perhaps not it seems.
