(See World's Best #1.)
First issue published as World's Best Comics.
The first UK distributed issue of World's Finest was issue #105 cover dated Nov 1959. All issues prior to this were Non Distributed (ND) in the UK and are therefore always cents copies. All issues in this run from #105-323 were distributed in the UK apart from #244-271 when the comic went to 80/64/48 pages Dollar Sized.
The British-priced variants are considerably rarer than their US cents counterparts as it is thought that only 2-3% of the print run was put aside for export to the UK and whatever was left over was sent to South Africa and Australasia. It is conceivable that 'lesser' titles outside potential main best-sellers like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman were distributed in even lower percentages.
