National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

Hello, I have a 1940's decade set for sale if anyone is interested.   I'm about 30 miles west of Philadelphia if local pickup is option for you.   All 120 issues from 1940 - 49.  Most maps are there but some are missing.  Condition ranges.  Most (80% +/-) are good to very good, but some (20% +/-)have writing or a page clipped pushing them to fair/acceptable condition.  This is's probably more like 90/10 % split.  

These have been stored clean and dry.  No water damage.  I recently sold a 1930's decade set on ebay for $315 and that set was missing all of the maps & supplements.  I'd like to be at $400 on the 1940's set which is little less than half of retail value if I were to sell individually.  I have it on ebay for $500 ( with free shipping) if you'd like to view.  The listing ID# is 152882258401.  

Also, I have a couple dozen random issues from the 19-teens and 20's if you want to include them in a deal.  (No April 1913 Machu Picchu....already sold that one)

Thanks for reading...
