Ben notes: Indicia reads 9/1962 on both regular copies and pence copies; however, the cover of regular copies reads “Aug” under the issue number while the month was omitted from the cover of the pence copies. As a result, CGC catalogs the regular copies with an 8/1962 census entry (going by the cover month) but meanwhile catalogs the pence copies with a 9/1962 census entry (going by the indicia). This gives the unfortunate false impression of the pence price variant being a later month reprint instead of a first print original.
Steve notes: Pence indicia contains regional distributor details; missing cover date.
