    Despite the [nn], Liberty Scouts #3 has a "letter" from the characters explaining that the Boy Scouts of America Corporation forced them to change their name.
According to Howard Keltner's Golden Age Comics Book Index (Second Edition), this was published directly by the Chicago Mail Order Co., unlike C-M-O Comics which was published for the Chicago Mail Order Co. by Comic Corporation of America, one of Centaur's two regular publishing companies.

In fact, the comic is a rebinding/reprinting of Man of War Comics #1 with the cover art of Liberty Scouts Comics #3 with a new "Liberty Guards" title banner. The inside front cover, and inside and outside back covers, are Chicago Mail Order ads, and where the indicia would normally be, "THE CHICAGO MAIL ORDER COMPANY...CHICAGO" is printed in large bold letters. However, this is clearly part of the ad and not a minimalist indicia.
