I am now considering selling this to raise some funds.  Does anybody know of an honest and reliable outlet that would offer me a fair price?I will be studying the grading criteria to accurately describe the condition of the magazine but it probably ranks fairly high in the list. I have just joined this group today and am…See More

Hi Mike I can’t work out how to email you. My set is still for sale. There is some really useful info written by I think a founder of this forum who tracks sales and values particularly on eBay. For me even if I donate them somewhere worthy shipping costs are the problem for such a big collection. Good luck with your quest :-)
