National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

Does anyone know of a printing error or variance with regards to the December 1976 issue of NGM? I found an old note I wrote down on paper, with the comment "there is a 'colors' variant on page 858".

I have no idea what I was referring to! If anyone knows anything, let me know.

I'm unclear what it means also. My copy looks like the one you have posted.

Thanks for checking your copy to compare, Mark. 


My Australia is a pale blue-green with the Perth area having red hashing - just like yours.

No other colors on the page.  Unless you were referring to the page itself, like white/cream???

Hmm, thanks for comparing. I don't know what my note was for, haha.

I checked 3 copies and they look the same as yours - I noticed a different colour between the left and right side of the page (dividing the heading/map on the left and the text on the right) but it seems like there is a line dividing yours as well.

thanks, Pece !

Checked both copies (just as your picture shows the page) - lament the day I had a store full of copies for comparison...

okay, haha. Well, clearly I had something in mind when I wrote the note, but that's what happens when the note sits for a few forget. I should have followed up on this when it was fresh in my mind!
