  Welcome to Collectors Corner, and I hope you are able to find a home for your father's collection. I remember your father from our vintage NGM sale many years ago and am sorry to hear he is ill.

Kindest regards,

Cathy Hunter

I am here to update this page. Unfortunately, on Dec 3, 2023, TAPS was played as MSG Joseph F Billone was released of his final post and duties of the US Army. His legacy of National Geo mags and maps still sit here today in plastic storage bins. My dad spent his life preserving these from the first to this past month's editions some in triplicate. It will kill my sisters and me to throw these away. Most are in acceptable condition. Please can someone find a home for them? My contact number is 631-355-3376.located on Long Island NY

I am very sorry to hear of you and your family's loss. I respect his service, and of course, appreciate deeply his passion for National Geographic collecting of knowledge & exploration.
