    Description

    Chester Gould Dick Tracy Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 8-27-47 (Chicago Tribune Syndicate, 1947). One of the weirder Dick Tracy villains, Coffyhead, a caffeine addict, with a head shaped like a percolator, stars in this storyline. Gould was winding down a triumphant decade of narrative excellence, here, while building momentum toward a similarly effective streak leading into the 1950s. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of approximately 20" x 6". Toning and handling wear commensurate with age. Very Good condition.

    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.
