    Description

    Four Color (Series One) #4 Donald Duck (Dell, 1940) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. One of the most impressive single Disney comics we have ever brought to auction! One of only two copies graded above 6.0 by CGC to date -- the other, also a VF 8.0, was in one of our previous auctions back in February of 2010, and sold for over $20,000. This early Donald Duck appearance, drawn by Al Taliaferro, is on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Comics list, and it's difficult to come by even in VG condition. When we offered the archives of Western Publishing we had hoped to find a nice copy of this gem, but to no avail. Overstreet notes, "prices vary widely on this book," and in our experience the value has shown significant increase over the past several years or so. Overstreet 2016 VF 8.0 value = $13,500. CGC census 5/17: 3 in 8.0, none higher. From the Robert E. Myer Collection.
