This is the rarest and most sought after issue of Daredevil, there are only 2 remaining in the census database which means coming across 1 of these comics odds is like winning a major lottery. Globally this comic is the rarest Marvel Hero comic  in the world.There's a (1.0 & 2.0)  rated book floating around in the world. 

If you own 1 of the 2 your sitting on a small fortune

Estimated Value $950,000 - $3,320,000+

I like pieces which are genuinely rare and close to one of a kind.  I tend to collect them myself and I think that sometimes collector/dealers denigrate them specifically because they are not easy to find and, thus, not easy to make money buying and selling them day in and day out, the way one can with things that are simultaneously both "rare" and very common.

But I consider it a disservice to all such things when one like this is hyped beyond reason or common sense.  

It may well be one of the rarest DD things out there.   Though, even with only two known to exist that makes it less rare than anything which is one of a kind.

But even if was with virtual certainty one of a kind, it would still not be the "most sought after".

And phrases like "if you have (one like this) you're sitting on a gold mine" is such a transparent way of trying to say "I'm sitting on a gold mine" that it would turn me off, even if I agreed with it.

When selling assets/ high value products i suggest bank wire transfer. I've personally never used paypal for any purchase over 10k.

In fairness, we're having fun here but I like the Horwitz DD1; $1600 is more than a real DD1 fetches in 2.0. So the rarity is already priced in. 

I like foreign editions of U.S. keys; I have a few and add them when I can. And I do think they are generally still undervalued. Heck, I'm guessing the 1.0 is the raw beater I was underbidder on on ebay a year or so ago. I bailed around a couple hundred, I think, so it probably achieved a few hundred. I can't remember if I even looked at the final.

I think the OP's book is a legit $1,600 range book with upside. But six figures plus? Not without hyperinflation.
