1) "Quadrangle maps of the State of New Mexico" publication date 1962.. spiral bound. Has New Mexico Highway Department logo on cover; Planning and Programming Division. 127 pages of quadrangles. Size 11.5" x 13" good condition
2) "Quadrangle Maps of the State of New Mexico" Black hardbound book 18" x 20". Cover has embossed - "Sandia Laboratories Library"; 1960; 127 pages of quadrangles; some of the first few pages are very frail. good condition
3) Communist China Map Folio. Excellent condition. Bound with Red Cover that says "Central Intelligence Agency". Dated October 1967. Size 21.5" x 17.5" Full page color maps with icons denoting places and some buildings, etc.
4) Large portfolio of map plates 12" x 17" . Excellent condition. Front page says"

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Here at JustAnswer, we are limited to appraising one item per question. Since these are similar items, I can extend that to two, but I really can't appraise six items within one question. Would you like to choose two?

Sincerely,

Jennifer

No thank you. just cancel my order. I will stop payment from paypal. We will do what we usually do and guess a price. I was just hoping for an opinion. Thank you anyway. I have no budget to pay for appraisals, and would prefer not to spend my own money. Please cancel my request. Payment wasn't mentioned until I spent a lot of time typing. Initial "advertising" on google is misleading. Thanks anyway. Barbara
