I am trying to figure out the value of my restored Archie # 1 CBCS 9.2 I purchased several years ago.  Any suggestions on how to value correctly?

It's in a climate controlled vault along with my Superman, Batman and DC 1 comics.

Man, if I had any one of those I’d have scans all over the place

I had an online scan when I sent it for an appraisal.  Yea, I have them all online.  My bank has a climate controlled vault, so due to the values, I moved all my valuable comics to the CC vault.  The insurance premiums were just too high.

All restored, Batman is the third highest grade. Superman is only a 7 though.  DC #1 is a 5.5.  Heritage says the Batman, Archie and DC # 1 are really nice and could grade higher. Since they screwed me on an auction in the Summer, they've been X'd from any comic sales. Talking to Metropolis and Comic Link.

CBCS or CGC graded ?

If you can link scans that would be awesome

Can't tell you much on the Archie1. Don't really follow that market but guessing would sell for the whereabouts of a 2.0 Universal copy.

I do not see how. ComicLink figures it can bring between 55k - 72k.

CGC.  Only bought the CBCS Archie as it's the highest grade and it's always been a key for me.

IGB?

The Meyers.

Husband and wife duo that are pro comic book restorers but they go overboard. Restoration on steroids. They've produced Superman1 and Batman1 in 9.6 and many others, Marvel super keys in 9.8 etc.

No offense meant to you,that's just a name some have given that companies projects here due to the high level of changes and restoration they do for some books.I believe they and cgc were in some legislation as well.

Here's an IGB Superman1

Superman 1 trumps Archie1 any day, every day.

And the current bid isn't anywhere close to what ComicLink is telling you'd get for your Archie1
