Captain America Comics #1 Signature Series (Timely, 1941) CGC VG- 3.5 Cream to off-white pages.

Also, as noted below, Signature Series copies of this major key are few and far between. Origin and first appearance of Captain America and Bucky by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. First appearance of the Red Skull. Hitler cover. CGC notes, "Signed by Joe Simon on 10/15/09. Small amount of dried glue on detached centerfold. 1 piece of tape on interior cover."
