NOTE : Most 1968 LOOK magazines have some regional content that varies from issue to issue. These pages are numbered with an M or a T, i.e. page M3 or T4, and are not part of regular pagination, nor does this content appear in the table of contents. We have attempted to indicate on the subject line 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” where that issue has already sold. T sections are less common than M sections and their content may also vary, I haven’t handled enough of them to know. See the bottom of a listing to see if it includes a T section or not. PLEASE TELL US WITH YOUR ORDER if you need a specific ad or article, I will not take returns for a “missing” M or T page item.
