    Classic Comics #8 Arabian Nights - First Edition (Gilberton, 1943) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white to white pages. Lillian Chestney provided one of the most distinctive covers in this famous series for this issue and also contributed interior art. It's a super-tough issue to find in high grades - CGC has certified just three copies of the first edition nicer than VF 8.0 to date and only this remarkable beauty in a grade nicer than NM- 9.2! One of a kind? Quite possibly! Overstreet 2011 NM- 9.2 value = $2,325. CGC census 2/12: 1 in 9.8, none higher.
