My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The decade of the 1940's would be hundreds of magazines. I am going to refer you to a page that has the price for every one depending on condition.
I hope this helps you to determine the value of your collection by piece. As you will see, some are worth more than others depending on condition and who is on the cover.
It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer, thank you!
I see that you have read my answer. It has been a pleasure helping you, let me know if you were able to view the page I added for you.
If you'd like to have me assess anything else, start a new question and put 'for rarewares' so that you could get me again.
