This wonderful unrestored copy which was bought off the newsstands in 1941 is offered here for the very first time. The current owner made a very wise investment when he forked over his dime for Captain America's very first appearance over 70 years ago. We tried to figure out his return on investment but unfortunately our calculator broke. A killer spine, deep vivid colors wrapped around off white to white pages - what more could you want?

This copy is from an original owner collection from upstate New York. The octagenarian collector bought all of his prized comics off the newsstand. Relatives of the collector were worried that he had thrown all his comics away years ago. After they recovered the comics it took five years to convince the owner to sell. He finally decided to due to health concerns. It was very important to him that the books find their way into a collection where they will be appreciated.
