    U.S.A. Comics #1 Larson pedigree (Timely, 1941) CGC VF/NM 9.0 Off-white to white pages. If we had to pick an early Timely #1 issue that seems undervalued, this might be the one. The wartime run, from 1941-1945, featured some great patriotic superheroes, including Captain America himself, after issue #5. Classic Joe Simon and Jack Kirby art adorns the cover, as Nazis are depicted in the vilest way. Origins abound in the issue; for instance, Major Liberty, Rockman by Wolverton, and the Whizzer by Avison. The Defender with sidekick Rusty, Jack Frost, and the Young Avenger also weigh in. To date, this pedigree copy ties for the honor of having the highest CGC-assigned grade for issue #1. Breathtaking cover colors make this as pretty a book as it is historically significant. CGC notes, "Very minor amount of glue on spine of cover." Overstreet 2003 VF/NM 9.0 value = $12,375; NM 9.4 value = $16,500.
