    Four Color #9 (Dell, 1942) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white pages. This milestone issue features the first Carl Barks Donald Duck. Barks would go on to draw hundreds of Disney duck stories over the next 24 years, creating Duckburg, Uncle Scrooge, Gyro Gearloose, and Gladstone Gander along the way. This copy has a super-clean appearance, begging close inspection to verify it doesn't deserve a higher grade. Just one other copy of this benchmark issue has graded as high as Near Mint by CGC. This is the third-nicest copy represented in the current CGC census. Overstreet 2002 VF 8.0 value = $4,670.
