Gem Tones

An apazine done for FAPA and SAPS in the early 50s by G. M. Carr. Issues were generally named each for a different gemstone or mineral, and many of them did not include a number. The ordering of the early issues shown here is uncertain, although we believe all of the FAPA issues came before any of the SAPS. Vol.1 was published from 1950-51; Vol. 2 in 1952; Vol. 4 in 1952-53. There appears not to have been a volume 3.
