41910 ~ $0.75 ~ (19??) ~ Tom West - The Gun from Nowhere (cover-art by Jerome Podwil) ~ {&} ~ Brian Garfield - Justice at Spanish Flat (Peviously released as Range Justice 1960)

Note: The Gun From Nowhere and Justice at Spanish Flat were originally published as ACE Double F-106 (1960). Instead of resuing old stock, it appears that ACE Books reissued this volume with the same cover art as ACE F-106 (note that the Podwil signature that is easily visible in the F-series has been nearly airbrushed out in the five-digit series edition) for The Gun From Nowhere. However, they did not reuse the cover art from ACE F-106 for Justice At Spanish Flats

This volume has a 6-digit number. I think this is either a misprint or the use of the later extension numbering where editions were marked with a -0 (for 1st printing). However, this is the first example I have seen in the ACE Western Doubles.
