A copy of this issue recently was on show at the 60's exhibition at the V&A Museum in London, and more recently; it is currently on show at the incredible must-see 'Beautiful People: The Boutique in 1960s CounterCulture' at the Fashion & Textile Museum in London:

This is the RARE AND REMARKABLE sought after "Hippie Issue", highly desired by collectors.  It perfectly captures the underground - counterculture, pop, music and counterculture history.  A snapshot in time, and certainly the most collectible few years of all time.
