Response: Comment on The Phantom (Frew, 1956 series) #321
Many Phantom comics are reprints. I'm not expert on them, but it doesn't seem to significantly lower their value. The more recent ones turn up occasionally on eBay. Probably sell for $30 - $50 depending on condition.

The more recent ones turn up regularly on eBay and Gumtree. The older ones are rare and expensive!

Don't know much about this series -- but I suspect it sold in low volumes originally so could be rare, but probably very little collector interest.
