    Four Color #189 Donald Duck in "The Old Castle's Secret" - Davis Crippen ("D" Copy) pedigree (Dell, 1948) CGC VF- 7.5 Cream to off-white pages. Uncle Scrooge made only his second appearance in this issue! According to some accounts, Scrooge was meant to be a one-shot character when first introduced in Four Color #178, but some six months later, Carl Barks brought him back for this story, in which he played a much bigger role than in his previous outing. The rest is history! The title tells you all you need to know about the rollicking Barks yarn that has made this a highly collectible issue. Overstreet 2006 VF 8.0 value = $536. CGC census 6/06: 3 in 7.5, 4 higher. From the Crippen Collection.
