The holy grail of Star Wars comic books! Click to check the LIVE prices now.

Marvel did some price experiments during the 1970s.

While in most regions the original cover price was maintained, it would send out a slightly more expensive edition to several test markets. You can see these price variants in the Amazing Spider-Man series, among many others from the same period.

The good news is, if you have one of these variant covers, then it's worth SIGNIFICANTLY more than a regular edition of Star Wars #1. It can be identified by the plain white square with the 35c price in it at the top left of the cover, and a barcode at bottom left.

These are very rare comic books. The best-known sale to date was a 9.4 graded copy which sold for $25,000 in June, 2017!

Even in terrible shape, you can bank on a few hundred bucks for this comic.

If you have one in any condition, absolutely we would value it for you. Please send us a picture and we'll be in touch.
