    All-American Comics #16 (DC, 1940) CGC FN- 5.5 Off-white pages. Overstreet ranks this issue fifth among its Top 100 Golden Age Comics, ahead of even the first issues of Batman, Captain America Comics, and Flash Comics. Sheldon Moldoff's most famous cover, among his many memorables, introduces the Green Lantern to the world in 1940, and the character has survived several incarnations to this day. Overstreet lists this as a "rare" book; Gerber in his The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books calls it "scarce." Let's not split hairs; it doesn't show up every day in any condition, much less in as fine shape as this copy. The most recent CGC census has no other copy graded higher. Overstreet 2002 FN 6.0 value = $24,640.
