At the Glenn Lord estate auction at the 2018 Windy City Pulp and Paper
Convention a variant cover for Action Stories Volume 12 Number 8
was discovered. A cover dated May-June 1934 on both the cover and the
spine was part of the Glenn Lord estate auction. Show runner Doug
Ellis revealed his personal copy of Action Stories Volume 12 Number 8
was dated June 1934 on both the cover and the spine. A comparison
revealed that inside on the table of contents, both issues were dated
June 1934 and the interior contents were identical.

The best guess to explain this is that one version was a mistake,
which was corrected mid-print-run. Rather than destroy the misdated
issues--which means eating the cost--the publisher let both versions
go out. If it had been a worse mistake, maybe the decision would have
been different.
