"Another option perhaps is to donate to a charitable body such as heartforethopia.org They are a major seller (of National Geographic) on ebay and all for a good cause. They seem to be based in Texas."

Mark Van Winkle replied to george warren's discussion Availability and ebay.
"Yes! I haven't been able to buy any quality magazines off of eBay for the past year. That timeframe roughly coincides with the pandemic, but I can't tell if there is causation involved or just incidental correlation between the two."

Hi George, I do still have the NGs 1905 to 1951, but shipping to the UK would be hugely expensive and time-consuming to package up, not to mention the risk of damage from shipping such a long distance. I'd prefer an in person pickup, especially of the older ones so the buyer knows what they're getting.
