    Description

    Playboy #1 Page 3 Copy (HMH Publishing, 1953) CGC VG 4.0 Off-white to white pages. The variant "Page 3 Copy" is much rarer than the regular newsstand version. Just how rare is illustrated by CGC's census which shows a disparity of nearly 4 newsstand versions to every "Page 3 Copy" certified. It has the same features as the newsstand version, most notably the Marilyn Monroe cover and center poster, the only difference being that page 3 of the newsstand version is not numbered, while the "Page 3 Copy" sports a proper "3" on that page. Not listed in Overstreet. CGC census (for Page 3 Copies) 3/20: 6 in 4.0, 40 higher.
