I am new to this group. I have a 20 year collection inherited from my aunt. The issues are all bound by year and each year is divided into 6 months of magazines. The covers are separate (not bound) and in excellent condition. The magazines are from 1940 (Volume 77) through 1959 (Volume 116). I also have 2 separate issues (not bound): January 1925 and February 1929.
Looking to sell, donate or give them to a fellow collector.
If the forties are in good condition they may have value to WW2 fans. Quality was not good during that timeframe due to shortage of materials due to the War. I often receive these years from folks and try to place them with interested parties, but value is limited for these years. Too many issues out there and too few collectors. Some value for isolated items. The Afghan Girl cover for example. Good luck.
Thank you for the information. Would it make sense to donate them to an organization? Are you aware of any that might have an interest?
Is anyone interested in these bound National Geographic magazines from the 1940s and 1950s? I have had not previous interest. I will be giving them away or destroying them. I can no longer keep them as I have no space for them. Thank you for any interest or recommendations for what I can do with this collection.
