    Flash Comics #1 (DC, 1940) CGC FN+ 6.5 Cream to off-white pages. Only two copies have been graded higher to date, a VF+ 8.5 and the 9.6 Mile High. And the fact that the latter sold for $273,125 should tell you a lot about the demand for this comic, the first appearance of the Flash, Hawkman, Johnny Thunder, Shiera Sanders (the future Hawkgirl), and others. Since those first two are among the most famous comic characters of all time, no wonder this comic is in Overstreet's Top Ten! This is a well-centered copy without the smudging that plagues so many specimens. Also, don't get us started on how many existing copies have been restored -- this one's Universal (unrestored) certification puts it in the sought-after minority. The cover art for this milestone issue is credited to Sheldon Moldoff. Overstreet 2007 FN 6.0 value = $20,250; VF 8.0 value = $51,000. CGC census 9/07: 2 in 6.5, 2 higher.
