Stockholm - A rare copy of the first Donald Duck comic in Swedish has gone missing
from a Swedish museum, reports said on Friday.

Only a few copies of the premier Swedish issue published September 1948 are known
to exist. The Donald Duck comic, known as Kalle Anka in Sweden, was estimated to be
worth some 150 000 kronor (about R13 000).

It was on display at the Comicland Museum in Koinge, about 100km south of
Gothenburg on the west coast.

Some collectors have questioned the missing copy's authenticity, but museum owner
Peder Mauritzon has refuted those allegations.

According to the police report filed on Thursday the theft was discovered a week ago,
the online edition of newspaper Hallands Nyheter reported on Friday.

The popular Disney character recently celebrated his 70th anniversary. Donald Duck
first appeared in an animated cartoon called "The Wise Little Hen" that was screened
on June 9 1934. - Sapa-dpa
