I take it that Amazing fantasy 15 is out of the question? Now that is one set of original art I'd love to get scanned.

Sadly, it's not public domain... but I'm crazy happy to know that somebody actually donated what is probably the single most valuable comic book original art to the LOC.  That still blows my mind.

I've seen digital pictures of the original art guys.  Perhaps a Google for it might turn them up for you.
There were some surprises you could see behind some white out and paste up corrections.

I had never heard a name, just that they were anonymous; it wasn't Ditko; and Ditko had been asked and OK'd the donation.

Marie Severin makes perfect sense and it's hard to think of anybody else who does, though.

 Many years ago, probably in the early 90s or late 80s I went to the LOC to do the same thing. I had heard you could read old comics. I actually was able to make black and white copies of a bunch of them. At the time, it was Junior, Phanton Lady, etc. I actually held Thunda #1 in my hands(I think). I still have them somewhere, like 15 or 20 black and white copies of comics I scanned there. Some of them were starting to fall apart as I laid them on the flatbed scanner. If I remember right I had to pay to scan them. I'm going to see if I can relocate them.
