#976 Easter issue. #980 came with a four page flyer adventising a Wizrd comic with a free gift 'I Am a Loco Spotter' with log book, badge and six photos. #997 came with a full page flyer for Bunty comic. #1000 anniversary issue. This iconic anniversary issue could fetch three times the stated values here. #1014 Xmas issue. A generally very attractive year as it contains issue #1000 and is a year that doesn't come up as complete at auction very often. A Fine Minus to Fine copy of #1000 fetched £41 on eBay UK in Nov 2010.
A complete 1961 year in nice clean bright FN grade could easily fetch £500-£650.
While special issues like New Year, April Fool and Fireworks fetch a little more than a 'regular' issue, the Christmas issue always commands much more - easily twice and on occasion for high grade copies, three times the value of a 'regular' issue.
