    Adventure Comics #84 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1943) CGC Qualified VF+ 8.5 White pages. This one's from the days of rationed materials when only one staple was the norm, and this copy has two added staples as well as a staple hole (the latter already visible on the Photo-Journal picture of this copy). We suspect that the hole was the reason for the "low" numerical grade, because everything else about this copy is in line with the superb 9.4/9.6 specimens that comprise the remainder of the run. We think that this copy has superior overall appeal to the highest-graded blue label copy, a 9.0 that's viewable in our online auction archives. This is certainly an issue to go after, thanks to the striking cover by the innovative Simon and Kirby, one that may well have inspired Flash #163 and other similar covers of later years. CGC notes, "2 extra staples added, not manufacturing." Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $119; VG 4.0 value = $238; FN 6.0 value = $357; VF 8.0 value = $750. From the Gary Keller Collection.
