NOTE : Most 1964 LOOK magazines have some regional content that varies from issue to issue. These pages are numbered with an M, i.e. page M3, and are not part of regular pagination, nor does this content appear in the table of contents. We have attempted to indicate items that were on an M page and, therefore, may or may not be present in the issue you purchase. We noticed this only partway through the description process, so it is entirely possible that we missed adding “M page” to something. PLEASE TELL US WITH YOUR ORDER if you need a specific ad or article, I will not take returns for a “missing” M page item.
