    Description

    Tales of Suspense #47 Pacific Coast pedigree (Marvel, 1963) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. Back in May of last year we offered the Twin Cities copy of this book, the highest graded copy (a 9.4) that we had ever seen... Until now! This virtually impossible 9.8 is a real jaw-dropper. The fact that Iron Man is still wearing his all-gold "clunky" armor makes it obvious that this is an early issue. And the origin and first appearance of the Melter and the Jack Kirby cover are definite pluses. Steve Ditko, Larry Lieber, George Roussos, and Don Heck art. Overstreet 2012 NM- 9.2 value = $1,450. CGC census 7/12: 1 in 9.8, 1 higher. From the Doug Schmell / PedigreeComics.com Collection.
