    Four Color #223 Donald Duck (Dell, 1949) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. Who doesn't remember the "square egg" story? Officially it's Donald Duck in "Lost in the Andes," written and drawn by Carl Barks who also did the cover. The background color varies somewhat on different copies of this issue, and we don't recall seeing one with such a deep orange background before now. Overstreet 2016 VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,350; NM- 9.2 value = $2,100. CGC census 5/17: 3 in 9.0, 4 higher. From the Robert E. Myer Collection.
