    Superman #40 (DC, 1946) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. Here's one of those white background covers that tend to get dirty and drop in grade almost from the time the book leaves the publisher. Only five copies of issue #40 have been certified in high grade by CGC to date. This copy is definitely an anomaly. At NM 9.4, it obviously has remained clean and bright. The next best copy CGC has reviewed earned no better than VF/NM 9.0. Wayne Boring created the cover, co-starring Mr. Mxyztplk in one of his earliest appearances. Overstreet 2003 NM 9.4 value = $1,150.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 69341004 and purchase grader's notes if available.
