Autumn 2023 Market Report
BEANO No 1: £5500.00 – STRANGE TALES #110 cgc 5.5: £2150.00
As you might expect, the first Beano from 1938 was strongly contested. Bought by our vendor in the mid-1980s, it showed some edge wear and tears and had been professionally restored with clear archival tape to most of its page edges and a narrow piece missing from the RH lower cover edge had also been restored. 30 years later we graded it as [apparent vg]. ‘Apparent…’ meaning a comic that is graded the way it presents after restoration.
