The Donald Duck backup issues Part II

As promised, here are some more photos from the "lost" issues of Kalle Anka & C:o/Anders And & Co.  [See previous post HERE.]
As you can see the small package has plenty of proofs in various stages. Some are lettered in Swedish, some in English and some have no text at all, but separate scripts instead. D-coded stories are mixed with stories from USA, Holland and Italy.
It's worth to mention that a few of these stories are unpublished.

Did we have fun browsing throught these stories? You bet. ;)

Let's take a closer look at some of the items.

First we have the compilation list for No 8.

Then the title pages to a few unpublished D-coded stories. 

Now, the big question is: What was in the big package? I had hoped for some long lost Al Hubbard original art pages, or something like that... But no such luck.
What we found was proofs pasted up on heavy card board.

If you click on the image below you can see how an Italian story was re-formatted to standard Scandinavian format.

And there were even a few unpublished Rydahl covers.

I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of "what could have been".

Thanks Joakim, that was an interesting inside peek. Those paste-ups of the Italian pages were quite well done for what must have been a rather uninspiring job.
