Among surviving copies of Carneys #1, the market area that received the $2.50 cover price copies was a restricted area representing less than 10% the population of the total North American comics market.

All of this adds up to a market value for the $2.50 variant approximately 150% higher than the regular copies in Very Fine / Near Mint condition (as of our 2023 CPV Price Guide Edition).
