National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

There's 3 variations of the December issue, though they all showcase the same cover story, and same cover imagery artwork. 

1) newsstand/retail copy - as always, has slightly modified text placement of secondary content, as well as the ISBN block, and the "Faith...." headline runs large across the mid-center of the cover

2) member's/mailed copy, primary - typical, no barcode, otherwise mostly the same, AND has same "Faith...." headline running across the cover

3) the true "variant" this time around - this one has the overall image cropped differently: it is zoomed in a bit more, so note the framing within the artwork does not show up as it does in the prior 2 examples. Also of course, no bar code, AND, no "Faith....." headline runs large across the front.

I don't know which one I'll receive yet. See 3 attached pics.
