Sub-Mariner #1 Cover by John Buscema

So yesterday, I'm standing at all the silver age long boxes and star'n at this guy when Scott walks up.  "What 'ya got there, Cap'n?  Oh, yeah, a classic.  I usedta have that and Iron Man #1 and..."  You know the old collector's patter, but he was naming everything that I had passed on back in the day.  I hung my head, "it's got water damage." (embiggen scan)  "But look at the low price!,"  Scott says enthusiastically.  "'s got water damage."  We both sighed, then Scott clapped my shoulder and said, "Ya know, with the Sub-Mariner, ya gotta expect some water damage."  Cha-ching
