    Patches #1-4 Group Mile High pedigree (Rural Home/Patches/Orbit, 1945-46). The condition of these books is truly excellent -- we wouldn't be surprised if #2-4 hadn't ever been opened before we looked through them in the grading process. Issue #1 is VF/NM, #2 is NM-, #3 NM+, and #4 NM. The first issue is quite different from the rest of the series, and not just because of the first issue's eye-catching L. B. Cole cover: in #1, Patches is blond, and stories range from adventure to sports to dating, starring Patches in every case. Thereafter, the character had dark hair and Archie-esque teen humor was the order of the day. George Harrison provided much of the interior art. Approximate Overstreet value for group = $850. From the John McLaughlin Collection
