I have a number of original copies of The Strand Magazine,

Customer Question

I have a number of original copies of The Strand Magazine, mostly from around the turn of the last century. Some are in quite good condition while others are missing covers/wrappers. Is there a way of assigning approximate values to the good ones so they can be offered for sale?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: I could provide a list of the issues I feel are worthy of sale if that would help.
