    Star Comics V1#1 Mile High Pedigree (Harry 'A' Chesler, 1937) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white to white pages. The single highest-graded copy, this issue is tied with Star Ranger #1 as the first Chesler-published comic book, and this copy's page quality is much better than you'd ever expect for a 1937 comic. This issue is notable for having original material back when that was the exception rather than the rule. Dan Hastings is the most familiar character represented here, and H. C. Kiefer is the best-known artist. The cover is by W. C. Brigham. The Photo-Journal Guide to Comic Books rates this issue a "7" or "scarce". Overstreet 2016 NM- 9.2 value = $6,500. CGC census 5/17: 1 in 9.4, none higher.
