Rarest is the one printed shortly after the attack ,it contains no pictures.

Reprints of the rare 1st Extra edition abound. Within a week, copies were sold to the public as historical mementos, many purchased by servicemen posted in Hawaii during the attack. Over decades, reprints have been offered as souvenirs at various tourist destinations including the Arizona Memorial, other museums and Hawaiian hotel gift shops. It is estimated tens of thousands of 1st Extra edition reprints were produced.
