Very Rare Duck

Heritage Auction Galleries feature very interesting animation-related items once in a while.

I came across a recent auction featuring a very rare 1947 Disney Cheerios Premium. (a mini-comic inserted in a package of Quaker Oats I wager...)
"Donald Duck's Atom Bomb" features appearances of Huey, Dewey and Louie with art by Carl Barks and was banned from ever being reprinted for obvious reasons.

This tiny booklet has an Overstreet value of $538 according to Heritage's records. Does anyone have any more information about this rare story?

"Donald Duck's Atom Bomb" was reprinted in an issue of Walt Disney's Comics & Stories (issue 571) in the 1990s by Disney Comics. Gemstone is publishing it soon (Amazon says next month) in an album paired with a sequel by Don Rosa.

Thanks for the info!

It's out now. The WDC&S 571 version was somewhat reinked and restored, but we managed to locate some previously lost line art stats for the new edition, so you'll get more of the original Barks art.
Do a search for "Donald Duck Adventures: Donald Duck's Atom Bomb/The Duck Who Fell to Earth".
