So here is my cover of the month.

I found this cover in a lot of old run down items.  As you can see it is fairly damaged with a bad tear.  It was severely rusted, but a good  friend did a great restoration work on it.  The Standerton rubber cancel used is fairly rare, and since it was made of rubber, those that survived or not always as clear as this example - that is the main reason I had it restored.  

It also has a intact V.R Martial Law censor label on the back.
