    Description

    The Haunt of Fear #15 (#1) Gaines File pedigree (EC, 1950) CGC NM/MT 9.8 Off-white pages. This is the first issue of one of EC's famous horror titles, and it has the first story Harvey Kurtzman produced for EC (though not the first to make it into print). Johnny Craig's cover gave way to exquisite drawings by himself, Harvey Kurtzman, Al Feldstein, and the team of Harry Harrison and Wally Wood. This unbelievable copy, at NM/MT 9.8, is joined by only one other copy atop CGC's census. And to top it off, this is a "scarce" issue! While CGC has certified this book as a Gaines File copy, no certificate accompanies this lot. Overstreet 2004 NM- 9.2 value = $3,800.

    View the certification for CGC Certification ID 0000186002 and purchase grader's notes if available.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
