    The Gumps, Andy and Min #1 (Landfield-Kupfer, 1920s) Condition: VF+. This beautiful horizontal format Platinum Age comic contains strip reprints by Sidney Smith. The art and logo on the cover are embossed, and the back cover features a menu for the Morrison Hotel in Chicago ("The home of the Terrace Garden"). The book has 20 pages and the dimensions are 14" x 5.5". The page quality is excellent, supple and strong, with no oxidation halo or even a hint of brittleness. Given that Overstreet notes that Platinum Age comics are scarce in high grades, and does not even list values for grades above VF 8.0, this could well be the finest example of this book in existence. Overstreet 2004 VF 8.0 value = $300.
