    Description

    All-American Comics #16 (DC, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Off-white pages. Not only does this issue have the origin and first appearance of Green Lantern, it's an Overstreet "rare" and a Gerber "7" (scarce), and it's notoriously scarce in high grade. That combination has it as the #4 book on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list. We last offered a copy in 2015 (also a CGC FN+ 6.5), which brought over $110,000, even more than today's Guide value! Sheldon Moldoff cover. Martin Nodell, Sheldon Mayer, and Stan Aschmeier art. Overstreet 2017 FN 6.0 value = $69,000; VF 8.0 value = $170,000. CGC census 2/18: 3 in 6.5, 2 higher. From the Simi Valley Collection.
