National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

Good morning

I'm starting to build a new collection from a few editions that I have found. I'm wondering if anyone could tell me which editions are valuable and I should try and keep an eye out for. I'm based in the UK.

How far back do you want to go and how much time and money do you wish to invest?

Two of the first four issues go for between $7,500 to $10,000 each.

To be honest those are well out of my price range, i'm willing to go up to a couple of hundred £/$ for the right editions. I know that the further back you go the more expensive and valuable they get. I have a couple of editions from the 1940's that has got me interested in collecting as many as I can.

i have full years from 1946-95 but there is no 1985 and some magazines i have sold on there own

Hi Andrew, what kind of prices have your magazines been going for? Are there any special ones that collectors really go for? Like a particular months edition from 1976 for example or something similar?

no particular month only sold the odd magazine from the sets. check ebay for prices

I have 32 NG magazines from the 1930's and 24 magazines from the 1950's.  You can have them for no charge if you want to pay the shipping.  They are listed on Ebay now.  I don't know how much shipping would be be if you're interested I'll check.  I also have many extra magazines from 1910-1919 I will be selling for an inexpensive cost.  I'm trying to downsize my collection.


Hi Dallas,

Are you still selling your extra magazines?

I am looking for years 1911-13.

Thank you.


Yes I am.  If you could send me your email I will send you a list of what I have for those years.



I sent it via PM/ friend request. Please let me know if you did not receive it.


Can you send a list of what you have prior to 1950?

My email is:


Hi Helena!

Do you have duplicates for the early years (until 1924)?

Where are you located?
