It's officially time to start an Archie 1 club (I haven't seen one on the boards yet so I'm assuming there isn't one)

 

You just don't see these very often and I'd really like to see other collector's copies so please post some photos guys.

 

Here's my offering to start things out.

 

This one just came back from CGC as a restored 7.0 (MP) with OW - W pages.

kudos to Matt & Kenny for their great work.

That is an awesome looking copy! It looks much nicer than a 7.0! Congratulations on a great book!

That's an amazing looking cover for a 1.0. Too bad about the brittle pages.

I believe Kenny & Matt have a treatment to bring back suppleness to the pages. Since it's so low grade it probably would enhance the value.

Here's mine. It has moderate restoration although I don't know who did the work.

Great looking copy!!!

Has it been graded? Is this one of the other 7.0s?

 

I bought it from Met over 10 years ago. It's not been graded but they listed it as 6.0 restored.

10 years ago, wow... I'll bet you got it for a fantastic price 10 years ago.

how much resto do you think it has? Did Metropolis say?

I know a guy who bought an Archie 1 back around 1972 from a then-prominent dealer. He's had in a safety deposit box since. He tells me he paid $200 for it (a LOT back then), and it is at least an 8.5. This guy owns a lot of GA keys, but I think he's proudest of that Archie 1.

There are at least 150 existing copies of Archie #1 today. It's a desirable book, but it's far from being scarce. There's always one for sale every other month.

 

Archie #2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are much rarer. There are less than 40 existing copies each.

 

I'd be interested in knowing where those numbers came from. In my experience I haven't seen what I would call a significant difference in availability of the first six issues of Archie.

Thanks for the suggestion. I handled the book before getting it slabbed. Turned the pages with no negative effect and nothing detached.

And, in keeping with the thread, here's mine :)

Wow, the cover is still attached. That's amazing for this comic.

 

Did you ever think about erasing the pencil in the "A"?
