    Daring Mystery Comics #3 (Timely, 1940) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white pages. The cover art here is by Alex Schomburg, one of the most esteemed Golden Age cover artists no matter whom you ask. Schomburg made the most of the only cover appearance ever by the Purple Mask, who was the Laughing Mask in #2 and alas, never seen again after #4. We think the eye appeal of the front cover transcends the 7.0 grade, and we encourage you to take a close look and see if you agree. Overstreet 2009 FN 6.0 value = $1,518; VF 8.0 value = $3,643. CGC census 4/09: 1 in 7.0, 3 higher. From the Chicorel Collection.
