    Archie Comics #1 (MLJ, 1942) CGC GD+ 2.5 Off-white pages. Archie's first solo comic (and the first appearance of Mrs. Andrews, Archie's mother) is a hot item in any unrestored grade, and this 2.5 copy may just be to book that your wallet has been looking for! It presents much better than one would expect from the assigned grade. The Bob Montana cover is a pure classic. Issue #1 is currently tied for the #20 spot on Overstreet's list of Top 100 Golden Age Comics, and Gerber's Photo-Journal Guide to Comics rates it a "7" or "scarce" on their Scarcity Index. CGC notes, "Cover detached." Overstreet 2020 GD 2.0 value = $12,900. CGC census 6/21: 3 in 2.5, 32 higher.
    From the Riverdale Collection.
