Archie Comics #5 (1943) CGC 1.5 1st App Mr. Smudge! Halloween Cover Comic
This listing is for Archie Comics #5, published by MLJ Magazines in 1943. This issue includes the 1st appearance of Mr. Smudge and Jasper Punchticket, and is tough to find in any grade. According to the CGC census, there are only 36 graded copies (and many of those are restored). This comic is rated 1.5 ("Fair / Good") by CGC. Its most significant defects (noted on the CGC label) are "Brittle Pages" and Cover detached. Please be aware that if you crack a comic out of its case for re-submission to a grading service, you are taking the risk in doing so, and we cannot be liable if you do not like how it is regraded. Broad selection & fair prices. We make every effort to disclose non-trivial damage to the holders, but minor imperfections such as light surface wear or slight inner well scuffing (present at the time of encapsulation) are common straight from CGC/CBCS/PGX. Newton Rings are also extremely common in newly slabbed CGC books (CGC tried to better protect the books by sandwiching them tighter in the cases, but as a result, a very large portion of newly slabbed books have some degree of rings). If these are important to you, please message and we'll be happy to provide more detail on the case. For those unfamiliar with Newton Rings: This is an occasional effect produced by the inner and outer cases being in direct contact with one another. The visual effect is similar to oil on a water puddle because of the two plastics. Ultimately it is not anything that is in direct contact with your comic, nor will it affect the comic's condition over time. The item "Archie Comics #5 (1943) CGC 1.5 1st App Mr.
