Hi Wendy;

I have approx 3500 mags total.  1100 in 'My Collection' spanning Jan. 1914 to 'now'; and approx 2500 'duplicates'. Duplicates span 1915 to 1993, with the bulk in the 1970's.  Thirty-one years (1929-1959) of (62) professionally bound (in black buckram) volumes (Lehman Book Bindery - Waterloo, Ontario).  1983 to present are in NGS leather sleeves.
