Seek advice as to best way to sell my late father’s collection. Would like to balance efficiency with max price. Eg, sell most issues as one bulk set and sell earlier issues individually? I am not in any rush but assume most issues are not worth selling individually. Thank you. Chris from New York

Try getting in contact with any of the NE dealers as listed in the Dealer Directory at the top left margin of the main page. They will most assuredly offer you rock bottom prices (as they're in the business to make a small profit) but they might be willing to take most of your fathers collection off your hands.

Good luck and sorry for your loss...

Thanks very much. Would you say that is better than eBay? Certainly less time-consuming. Again thank you.

It's a balancing act.

You'll probably obtain more for the most sought after issues - pre 1920's but it will be a long and hard trod and sales have been very sluggish these past two or three years.

All you can do is ask...


Please list the pre-1906 issues available together with their condition. Thank you.

Hi, it turns out that the only pre-1906 issue is July 1905.

Best, Chris 

Hi Chris! This is quite the collection. I’m seeking
The National Geographic Magazine: Volume 16, January 1, 1905
Do you have this volume?
Thank you!

No, sorry, it looks like I only have July 1905.
