    Description

    Four Color #9 Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold (Dell, 1942) CGC VF+ 8.5 Cream to off-white pages. The word "genius" is bandied about a lot, but few comic enthusiasts would dispute Carl Barks' inclusion in that category. This milestone issue boasts Barks' very first Donald Duck story, "Donald Duck Finds Pirate Gold." This is by far the most highly prized comic of this series' 1,300-plus issue run! Barks drew the cover as well as the interior art. Huey, Dewey, and Louie also appear. Overstreet 2005 VF 8.0 value = $5,800; VF/NM 9.0 value = $9,813. CGC census 12/04: 2 in 8.5, 3 higher.
