This particular issue includes the original mailing envelope. The issue has never been opened beyond 20% for examination and has only been out of the original envelope three times since 1954. The first time was on the date received. The issue was not read and was accidentally put in a closet with other magazines and forgotten. The second time it was removed was when we inspected the item at the time of purchase. The last time it was removed was when we took the pictures used in this listing. The magazine has been returned to its archival box and placed back in its bank vault.
The cover and all pages are still vibrant with full color. No foxing, no toning no staple rust or separations and no other problems. We grade this issue at 9.6 to 9.8.
