    National Comics #17 Mile High pedigree (Quality, 1941) CGC NM+ 9.6 White pages. He isn't Lou Fine (and who is?), but Reed Crandall produced some great cover artwork for this title, and even maintained a kind of a Fine-ish feel to this cover. Crandall also contributed interior art for this issue, along with Fred Guardineer, Klaus Nordling, Nick Cardy, and the man who didn't draw the cover but still made a valuable contribution between the covers, Lou Fine. Regarding condition, the CGC grade doesn't tell the whole story in this case; this Mile High comic's superior paper quality and sheer "freshness" put it a cut above virtually any other Golden Age pedigree book. To date, this is the highest CGC-graded copy of this issue. The only other copy of this issue currently in CGC's census was certified as only FN 6.0. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $740.
