Having been asked by three different families over the past 18 months to assist in the dispersal of rather substantial collections I thought it prudent to repost the following story.I am trying to…Continue
"I thought there was a listing for all four of Volume I, could be mistaken.
Check the inside back cover, lower right quadrant. If there is a very small number "75," you have two different issues of the same reprint. The one without the…"

I'm a dedicated, albeit aging, collector. My standards are high, but updating my newer issues 1960 or newer has not been my highest priority. In all of my issues 1970 through 1999 I have 4 VG and 21 VG+ issues I would consider replacing…"

I am happy that the NGS is providing continuing support for this forum.
I grew up with NG's and my parents bought me a lifetime subscription when I was 15. I've finally decided to stop at 1909 (I hope), because several years back, I purchased a bound volume for that year. I had stopped at 1913 (the year my dad was born), but that three year gap bothered me; then, three months ago, I found someone selling his early 1910's and picked up 1910-1913 (about $20 each). I purchased the 1913's to get the one issue I was missing - April (Machu Picchu). I feel really satisfied now. I'm only missing May 1923, "At the Tomb of Tutankhamen" How far back does your collection go?
Hi Melvin - I am new to collecting the National Geographic magazines and so at this point I am looking to buy the more extensive collections - but quite clearly the more recent vintages (like 1950s onwards - unless there's a way to get the earlier years at a reasonable price) - since the very very early vintages (late 1800s-early 1900s) are quite out of my reach (and intent).
