    Description

    Flash Comics #1 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC NM+ 9.6 Off-white to white pages. One of the most important comic books of any age, Flash Comics #1 featured the origins and first appearances of the Flash, Hawkman, Shiera Sanders, the Whip, and Johnny Thunder. This milestone issue is currently ranked as the eighth most valuable comic book of all, its value appreciating more during 2004 than all but three of the Top 25 Golden Age Books. And this remarkable copy offers yet another example of the significance of Edgar Church's collection. To date, CGC has certified merely 13 unrestored copies, only two others grading above VG/FN 5.0, with just one of those exceeding FN+ 6.5. Sheldon Moldoff contributed cover and interior art. Along with the Pay Copy of Marvel Comics #1, this resides near the top of our auction highlights. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $110,000. CGC census 12/05: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
