HIGHEST REORDER NUMBER (HRN)

 

The Highest Reorder Number of a Classics Illustrated comic book

corresponds to the highest-numbered comic book on its reorder list,

which can be found on the reorder coupon.

The reorder coupon is usually on the outside back cover.

If it is not on the back cover, the next most likely location is

the inside back cover.

If it is at neither of these places, it will be on the inside front cover.

 

The reorder list begins with “1.  The Three Musketeers,”

followed by “2.  Ivanhoe,” etc.

The last title in the list has the largest number,

which is the HRN or Highest Reorder Number.
