I very rarely have purchased old comics from dealers, having inherited them, or bought them new off the spinner. But this comic was an exception. Some years ago I talked with a dealer who was on tour with an antique show at a mall, and I told him of my interest in some of Kelly's fairy tale comics, and gave him my address to contact me if he found any on my want list. Whoa, just two weeks later a large envelope arrived with this comic, beautifully packaged. The dealer wrote that if I didn't want it, just send it back, or if I did want it, I could send a check (for a very fair price). I was dumbfounded that a dealer could be so trusting, and to keep that trust, of course I sent a check immediately.
