A myriad of 1st appearance litter this historic first issue.  Many are one shots, or short lived exploits of characters no one knows or cares about.  However it does feature the first appearance of Chin Lung who not only appears on the cover of this debut issue, but also the ever classic Detective Comics #8, arguably the most iconic pre Batman cover.

14 Universal copies on the CGC census, 4.46 average with 3 6.5s at the top and a single 2.5 at the bottom.  It should be noted that there are also 17 restored copies on the census.
