What's All-American Comics #16 worth in 2021?

The value of All-American Comics #16 in Mint condition is unknown but suspected to be over $1,000,000 due to an offer for $1,000,000 made for a CGC NM 9.4 copy in recent years.  A CGC FN+ 6.5 sold for $215,000 in 2018, which further justifies the $1 million offer on the CGC 9.4.  Green Lantern is a very popular character and this issue is fairly scarce with an estimated 100 copies or less in existence.   10 years ago, a low grade copy in GD 2.0 could be purchased for $10,000.  Now, that same copy in the same grade would cost nearly 4X that price at $35,000.  If an unrestored copy is offered up for sale, and you can afford it, it's worth the investment to pick one up. 

Why is this comic book valuable?

All-American Comics #16 showcases the very first appearance of the Golden Age Green Lantern - Alan Scott in 1940.  Martin Nodell created and modeled Green Lantern from Greek Mythological gods.
