"Hi Ted, A few questions...Are your maps reprints or originals? Also could you list the maps. Some like the Jan 1902 Philippines maps(2) are super valuable. I hope this helps you ... Best, Phil "

TED WILLIAMSON replied to Konstantin's discussion Have a REPRINT collection for sale
"Konstantin, My advice to you is to put these on eBay, but you're going to have to offer some kind of proof they are from 1964 to get the best price possible.If you're not prepared to do that, get hold of a collector in the Toronto area who…"

TED WILLIAMSON replied to Konstantin's discussion Have a REPRINT collection for sale
"Mel,  I've got a bunch of 2010 reprints that do not have "75" on the inside of either cover; they are definitely not 1964 by default. Ted"

Have you ever, like me. wondered just how many of the first 36 issues (the Red Brick issues - 1888 through 1885) are extant? This is my proposal: That a respected member of the National Geographic community (perhaps an employee of the National Geographic Society) conduct a poll among all the dealers nationwide, inviting them to disclose the amount of each number in their inventories. These dealers, in turn, may invite prominent collectors of their acquaintance tp share their  numbers, which the…See More
