Re: Comic book medals

The other is more of a coin reading Ally Sloper's Half Holiday. with the words, 'The F.O.M' along the bottom. on the reverse reads Sloper's Club, not transferable, and a number stamped on it '6313.

Re: Playtime comic #1 with free gift (1919)

I got these a few years ago on ebay. I had always been a Beano & Dandy collector thinking that everything before this where storey papers & I found comics like Illustrated Chips, Jester, Joker, etc etc. So one seller had a pile of really old rare looking stuff so I decided just to buy pre-war comics...

Re: What comics DIDN'T you buy today?

A collection of approx 35x Shiver & Shake comics from 1974, owner states some suffered from damp staining. closer inspection shows pen numbering to top corner of each issue but good eye appeal. I dropped out and it all sold for £45
