I picked up a copy of the book: THE BEST FROM YANK THE ARMY WEEKLY, selected by the Editors of YANK, E.P. Dutton & Co., 1945. The book is not rare but what makes this one unusual is that it is signed by about 90 staff members and about a dozen of the cartoonists have drawn original sketches. In the illustrations below the Kennedy Half Dollor was just used to hold the page down while I photographed it. I show 4 of the 5 pages with signatures.

It will take me a while to research all these names, but I know some of the cartoonists are famous.
