Does anybody know the timeline of for each silver age pedigree? I think I read on these boards that White Mountains started in the golden age and ended around 1964\65, but what about the other pedigrees?


Pretty sure White Mountain continued past 1965 as I've seen a WM copy of Spidey #120, a Bronze book.

Curator began in the early Silver Age and continued into the 1980s, and it did contain extensive runs of both DC and Marvel. The original owner also had a big Golden Age collection, but he was a convention goer and assembled his Golden Age books from stores and shows.


Re: to the WMs running into the '70s...The only White Mountain I own is an ASM #123 (1973).

This is my only White Mountain copy label says 10/73, it would be interesting to find out the last issue/date for this pedigree run. hm

I have a WM where monsters dwell #25 which is 11/73. That's my latest one.

The WM's run into the 80's as well but when I spoke with Jerry Weist (RIP) last he said at the time he didn't bother with the newer stuff as it had very little value at the time.

How the mighty have fallen.

That only holds true when you're considering SA superhero books. The WM collection destroys the others when you factor in the Atlas, pre-hero, and DC stuff.

I enjoyed reading through this thread as well...now that the Curator FF's are out there and the Twin Cities pedigree is worthy of a Top 10 pedigree designation, it's fun to see how things in this arena bob and weave.

I just picked up my very first Pacific Coast FF, too...awfully nice, but not better than the Mass copy I have, either...hard to compare individual issues on these collections; the entire runs need to be considered. I wish I had more experience with all of them.

This thread was started before the big influx of pedigree collections we have witnessed over the past couple years. It was fun to reread it all. I'll still put the Curator collection near the top of any SA pedigree list for freshness and page quality but based on cover colors, the Twin Cities books rival anything I've seen. I'd put Twin Cities on a par with the Mass pedigree.

+1

As for the top SA Marvel pedigrees, it's hard to argue with the incredible structural quality and centering of the Pac Coast runs. Still, if the quality of the paper has primacy, then the Curator books stand above all others. What strikes me about the Curator FFs is the singular preservation of the paper and inks. The covers are the whitest I've seen by far, and the inks are rich and bright.

Check out what I mean by comparing the Curator copy (right) with another high grade example of FF26: same scanner and image processing settings.

Great comparison of the #26, Bob -- I'd say Curator and Pacific Coast at the top of the SA for quality and breadth, with the Mass, TC, and WM all grouped together next -- if one can excuse the various dust/sun shadows on some Twin Cities books. Northland not far behind, either, as some of those are super sharp.
