A very collectible run. Large tabloid size with those great summer fun covers - beaches and boats, sandcastles and sky. Aaaahh...those were the days. Early Beano Summer Specials turn up on eBay UK with some frequency though most are VG or less condition. A true Fine copy of an early one is hard to find. The series came out of the very first Dandy-Beano Summer Special from 1963.
I've seen two or three first Beano Summer Specials in Very Fine, none in Near Mint.
The last regular annual Beano and Dandy Summer Specials were in 2002 and then they continued after a fashion as Beano Special Series and Dandy Special Series from 2003 onwards.
After 2007 Beano Summer Specials appeared with slightly different titles like the Beano Summer Special No. 1 in 2011, The Ultimate Beano Summer Special #2 and #3 in 2012 and the Beano Summer Activity Special in 2014, 2015 and 2016. See details and values for these as separate title entries.
Note: some PR issues may have no value. Selected issues in FN, VF or VF/NM may not exist in some titles.
