    Description

    Action Comics #25 Mile High pedigree (DC, 1940) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. Superman, an American icon for more than 75 years, is the star of this early issue of Action Comics. The condition of this Mile High copy is remarkable, even for this pedigree. Many comics from the collection of Edgar Church are in unimprovable condition, but, to paraphrase Orwell, some are more unimprovable than others. This is one of those truly amazing copies that looks like it was lifted from the magazine rack of 1940 and teleported across time to the home of Heritage Comics. And according to the latest CGC census, it is by far the highest-graded copy of the issue. Given that nearly all of the other Mile High copies of early Actions have been locked away in collections for years, you will need to act decisively if you want to acquire this rare jewel. Overstreet 2014 NM- 9.2 value = $8,500. CGC census 5/15: 1 in 9.6, none higher.
