Anyone know anything about these ?

Did Willard Manufacturing print them? I cannot find any reference to them in my books.



I am curious if these two books are in any manner different from their peers.

I noticed those as well.  I was actually pretty skeptical about their legitamacy, until upon second look I saw Foul bid on them to the tune of $25.00 to $30.00.  Now I don't know if that makes them legitamate or if he was trying to buy them for curiosity sake as well.  Maybe when he pops in again, he can fill us in, or you can try to email him to see what his thought are on them. :?

My guess is they're legitimate, but not highly valuable except as a curiosity.  Obviously they're great condition orange spines -- but they're not exactly in the same realm as the PHB that Stormber has up at the moment.  I'd say Foul bid about right on them, I think the winner was speculation (possibly a shill, but more likely newbie enthusiasm) as they don't have a large history of bidding on D&D products.



Google for "Corvon" and you'll see lots of printing pages come up.  Presumably that's what the MMII and PHB covers are made out of.  Someone with more printing knowledge can elaborate, perhaps.
