In the early 80's DC Comics increased the size of some of their comics and added some back up stories. In doing so they nearly didn't have room for the letters page. They printed it on the inside cover where normally an advertisement would have been. Actually they had done away with all the ads in the comic books they added the features to. Here is a 1981 letters page from World's Finest Comics that shows they also didn't leave much room for the letterhead on the page. You almost need a magnifying glass to see it.

This is from the DC Comics humor book Swing with Scooter in 1967. Scooter was a Mod teenager who was up on all the happenings with the pop groups. On his text page they didn't show letters the fans mailed. Instead Scooter himself talked about the latest scoops he had on the pop groups of the day like The Beatles, The Monkees, The Stones, Lovin' Spoonful etc.
