Betty/Veronica Collection #3

Archie’s Girls Betty and Veronica #162 (Jun 1969) VG- 3.5

Here is the last of three Betty And Veronica issues from the Sixties that I recently picked up. This one from Spring of 1969, has on the cover a typical gag featuring Betty & Veronica. This was the last 12-cent cover price for the series. The original 1950 cover price was 10-cent and the price went to 12-cent in the early 1960s.
