Apparently an "ashcan" issue published for trademark purposes. Ziff-Davis issued a large number of these in the late 40's but the purpose of this one is not certain. It is known that Howard Browne planned to convert Amazing Stories to a large-size, semi-slick format in 1950 but was thwarted by paper rationing when the Korean War started. This issue may have been printed to protect a modified version of Amazing's title and logo.
