Statement history:

    No sales figures were required in Statements appearing before 1960. The 1960 statement included only total sales figures without breakdowns, as most did that year. By 1963, Charlton was publishing additional data. It is highly unlikely that a Statement exists for 1964, as the last issue would have come out too early in the year. It is unknown whether the series final incarnation ever included postal data, but the run was so short that is highly unlikely.
