Diamonds are a girl"s best friend and no one had a better friend than Elizabeth Taylor"s 69-carat Cartier Diamond. Cartier purchased the diamond for $1,050,000 - the highest price ever paid for a diamond at that time. Richard Burton purchased the diamond in a matter of days stating, "It's just a gift for Liz!" And what-a-gift!
The Burtons agreed to let Cartier display the diamond for a period of time. There are two pages of great snapshots of people admiring the diamond with their own reflection staring back at them.
For the politically minded, don't miss the editorial, "Did Mr. Nixon Make His Job Harder?"
You'll enjoy the nice vintage advertisements for the Polaroid Land Camera, Buick"s 1970 Opel Kadett (The Mini-Brute), General Electric Clocks, Ronrico Rum, and Coca-Cola.
The magazine is in good overall condition. The front cover has bends on both of the outside corners. There is minor wear on the edges and binding edge. The interior pages are clean - no writing or dog-ears. The lower right corners of the first several pages have tiny bends from wear.
