Remember way back on October 25, 2011 when Len uploaded his Chesler Mystery Comic here?
(Click on 'Len's Version of PUNCH 20' link above)
We talked about it in Len's Uploads topic starting here -
Well, all these months later Rangerhouse scanned Another mystery Chesler with The Exact Same contents AND the back cover!
Some detective work on Heritage Auctions which keep an excellent 'Auction Results Archives' section with scans of front and back covers. Looking at all the Dynamic and Punch Comics not already on DCM which had the same story content as our mystery books we narrowed the possibilities down to either Punch Comics #17 or #20.
Punch #20 was the Only book to have the same Baby Ruth back cover as Ranger's book. But the Keltner Index gives a different page count which has always been our stumbling block.
Ranger then mentioned that the cover of his copy had been neatly razor bladed off along the spine and a tiny sliver of it still remained. He took a very close look at what he had and the two Punch issues and has NO DOUBT AT ALL that our mystery books are in deed PUNCH COMICS #20.
We hate to doubt the wonderful work found in The Keltner Index but in this case it was incorrect. The page count is 52pgs and NOT the 36 as reported.
We hope that GCD will update their listing for the book to reflect the information we've found and the scans that are now Both up on DCM.
You can now find both version in the Punch Comics folder. Our thanks to Len and Rangerhouse for sharing this mysterious comic with everyone here.
