    Daring Mystery Comics #2 (Timely, 1940) CGC VF 8.0 Off-white to white pages. Issue #2 is a rare book according to both Gerber and Overstreet, and this is one of just three copies certified above VG/FN 5.0 by CGC! Only the Lamont Larson copy at 9.0 has been graded higher. The book's got cover art by the masterful Alex Schomburg.

    This copy's front and back covers are both very sharp, and we expect many a Timely collector to scrutinize our scans, as well they should! It's tough to tag this book with a value since so few change hands, but we doubt that the VF Guide value will be nearly enough to take this one home.

    Overstreet 2009 VF 8.0 value = $7,800. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 8.0, 1 higher. From the Chicorel Collection.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 912105005 and purchase grader's notes if available.
