I am having a hard time looking for this 100 year old issue.
If anyone has a copy of this issue or know where to find one.
Please contact me by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's a link to a copy for sale online:
Hope this helps you,
In fact I just saw that webpage a few minutes ago.
Since August of 2012, there have been at least four Sep 1912 issues sell on eBay. There may have been more, but these were the four highest priced sales. They ranged in condition from Fair to Very Good and in price from $19.95 to $22.25.
Of note, the poorest conditioned issue sold for the highest price.
There are a couple of sayings that apply here:
1) Patience is a virtue
2) All good things come to those who can wait
If you set up an automatic search on eBay just for the Sep 1912 issue, you'll get your notification whenever one becomes available (and there will be one), and I'm certain you'll be able to find one in at least as good as the condition as the one on the web site Phil referenced and far less than the $75 being asked for it.
Good luck in your hunt (and the conservation of your funds)!
I myself have been surprised that the Sept. 1912 Issue has been hard to find lately.
I know,I do recall the others of this very same issue that have been for sale in the past.
Once I get this issue I'll have a complete run from the last 103 years. I'll let you know when I find it.
Thanks for the well wishes and you are right it is a hunt!
