Hi Dale,

 

Nat Geo Collection.xls

 

Yes I am still collecting according to a well-rehearsed routine that I've developed since I first contributed to this site.  Approximately every quarter, I visit a few second hand shops.  I buy up every copy of Nat Geo on their shelves, at an average 40c/copy.  When I get home, I compare them with my collection and weed out any duplicate poorer quality editions.  I then complete the cycle by returning these to my local Red Cross bin.  Then I can enjoy reading the new ones I've acquired.  My current collection list is attached - there are many gaps.  How did you build your complete collection?

Thank you
Andrew

Hi Dale,

You have mentioned some good friends.  I have not talked with Howard and his wife Jane for years.  I purchased some unique items from them.  I basically stopped collecting in the early 2000's as it became harder and harder to fine the items I wanted; also my collection is so large it developed a life of its own.  There is not much that I don't have.  I would like to talk with you about collecting.  My email is pjepdds@aol.com

Jeff
