According to the Weird Indexes of Eerie Publications by Mike Howlett, this volume 5, issue 5 of Horror Tales is the second volume 5, issue 5 to hit the newsstands in 1973. The first one is dated June 1973, and appears to be actually isssue 3, but was given the right volume but wrong issue number. As you get later into the issues, more and more stories from earlier issues reappear. Some wonderful artwork in this issue.
