    Four Color #386 Uncle Scrooge - Double Cover (Dell, 1952) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white pages. Uncle Scrooge's first solo story, "Only a Poor Old Man," makes this issue a milestone in Duck history. Both this issue's cover and the interior art are by Carl Barks. This is the de facto Uncle Scrooge #1, as the character would appear in two more Four Colors before his own title began with #4. This story has deservedly been reprinted many a time, but of course there's no bigger thrill than owning the original. CGC notes, "1st cover 7.0, interior cover 9.0." Overstreet 2005 VF/NM 9.0 value = $1,304; NM- 9.2 value = $1,800.
