    All-American Comics #16 (DC, 1940) CGC Apparent VF 8.0 Slight (P) Off-white pages. Unusually attractive copy of an issue that currently ranks fifth on Overstreet's Top 100 Golden Age Books list. To put that in perspective, CGC has certified just one unrestored copy nicer than FN 6.0 to date! Green Lantern's origin and first appearance makes this a real collector's quest, made all the more challenging by the fact it's so scarce (Overstreet "rare" and a Gerber "scarce"). Sheldon Moldoff created the memorable cover. CGC notes, "Restoration includes: spine split sealed to cover, glue on spine of cover, cover cleaned, cover reinforced." Overstreet 2009 GD 2.0 value = $12,000; VG 4.0 value = $24,000; FN 6.0 value = $36,000; VF 8.0 value = $96,000.
