I only just noticed that some of my old horror comics have had a giant increase in price since I purchased them (maybe five years ago?). I was most surprised about Chamber of Chills #23 which I picked up for about $120 (already graded), and even then was surprised that such a good looking comic could be only a 4.5 (Out of all my comics, this is the one with the most impressive color and never fails to make me stare at it - still vibrant to this day)

Question to those in the know - how desirable is a File Copy pedigree for such a comic, and what kind of price modifier could I expect on it (If any)?

Great investment!  The fact that it's a file copy doesn't hurt, but it's not of great consequence either way.  Pedigrees, and from the collection of, can add something, not too much most of the time, but something.  File copies can be meaningful, like in EC copies for example, because they're all near pristine., but not so much because they're file copies.  In this case, the book speaks for itself.   Your fair market value is of a presents extremely well 4.5 CoC 23, which is high enough. :)

Thanks! This was actually my first, and currently only, comic with any sort of 'providence' to it - so was unsure of where 'File Copies' stood on the pedigree scale of importance.

I should note, I'm not an expert.  I have a good idea, but lots of folks on here know better than me.

You had a major score picking up that looker cheap -- it's likely 4.5 due to staining somewhere. Overall, Harvey "file copies" could accurately be described as "warehouse copies" as that's what they were -- it doesn't particularly add or detract from the desirability of your book, which currently is off the charts compared to when you got it. I'm glad to own a copy I bought years ago as well, however it's not as nice as yours. Congrats! :)
