    Detective Comics #225 Circle 8 pedigree (DC, 1955) CGC FN/VF 7.0 Off-white to white pages. This book features the first appearance of the Martian Manhunter, one of DC's first Silver Age superheroes. Because it was printed in 1955, shortly after the Comics Code Authority wrecked the market, Detective #225 is quite scarce in high grade. This copy is very glossy, exhibits deep colors, sharp edges, and appears fresh and white. Only slight corner wear keeps it from grading VF. Overstreet 2002 FN 6.0 value = $1,074; VF 8.0 value = $3,222.

    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.
