It sounds very interesting, but I have some doubts. Some of the lots include several magazines, and I don’t know if the price is per issue or for the whole lot. I also would need shipping, and I have read that the price of the boxes depends on the number of items. Does it mean, the number of lots, or the total number of magazines?

Thank you very much. I hope to get an answer son, as the auction closes in 24 hours!

Hi Juan Carlos.  We count each "lot" as an item and try to place as many lots as possible in a single container so it is cost effective.  

You are also bidding per "lot", so if the lot is one item then you are buying one.  If the lot is a whole year then there are 12 items, but 1 lot.  If you are buying Jan 1920 to Dec 1924, then 60 items = 1 lot.

Hope that helps.  I am travelling, so if you have more questions please email me at
