    Description

    Four Color (Series One) #4 Donald Duck (Dell, 1940) CGC VF 8.0 Cream to off-white pages. A high-grade copy of this book is absolutely unheard-of! This is the only copy graded above 6.0 by CGC to date, and we would have to call it one of the most impressive single Disney comics we have ever brought to auction.

    This early Donald Duck appearance, drawn by Al Taliaferro, is on Overstreet's list of the 100 most valuable Golden Age comics, and it's difficult to come by even in VG condition. When our firm offered the archives of Western Publishing we had hoped to find a nice copy of this gem, to no avail. We hear this copy was actually purchased decades ago from Malcolm Willits' famous Collectors Bookstore, a well-known mecca for the discriminating Disney fan. Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $8,625. CGC census 10/09: 1 in 8.0, none higher.
