Hi Pete,

        The value of Nat Geo magazines is basically based on supply. The more there are the less they are worth. The 1950' s had 2 Million copies every month, the 60's- 2.5 million, 70's -7 million, 80's- over 10 million then it started to go down till the 2010's - 4 million. The value based on sales is $5 per issue for the 50's, $2 for the 60's , $.50 for the 70's to the point where the 80's on up are worth very little.

I hope this gives you help in deciding where to go with your collection.



that is great advice and thank you Philip. May I ask for 1900-1940s

regards pete


When you talk about 1900 you are getting into serious collecting. The above link is from this site (and fellow collector Mel).  It  gives a more detailed evaluation of the value of the early years..

Good luck in your collecting endeavors...
