    Carl Barks Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #271 Donald Duck page 2 Original Art (Gold Key, 1963). Donald can't wait to buy a "Primrose Valley Ranch" property from agent Swinely -- think he'll get a good deal? A nicely detailed page from the "Good Duck Artist", Carl Barks (note the "horse" planter next to Donald's radio), featuring Donald in every panel. As he usually did, Barks drew this page from "A Stone's Throw From a Ghost Town" as two half-page boards, which have been joined by way of a third piece of bristol that was glued to the two halves; this joining segment is now beginning to come loose, and there are some light stains and paper tanning, primarily on the lower half of the art. The combined image area measures approximately 16" x 23.25", and the overall condition of the art is Very Good. Barks Duck story art is always eagerly sought by collectors, who know that the majority of Barks artwork was destroyed by the publishers. Don't let this one slip past!

    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.
