    Detective Comics #34 Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (DC, 1939) CGC VG/FN 5.0 Off-white to white pages. This was the last non-Batman cover of Detective's long, illustrious, and still-continuing run! Creig Flessel is credited with the cover art, featuring a character generally thought to be the Crimson Avenger, who oddly enough doesn't appear inside the comic. As for the Batman story, there's some early continuity here, with the Caped Crusader still in Europe in the wake of his Hungarian adventure in #32 - he heads for Paris to take on the villainous Duc D'Orterre. Overstreet 2006 VG 4.0 value = $970; FN 6.0 value = $1,455. CGC census 6/06: 1 in 5.0, 5 higher. From the Crippen Collection.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
