I have a first editio...
I have a first editio of Penthouse, Ken, Look, and OUI. Ihave no idea of their value. The Look magazine has all the pages and is not in new condition. The other magazines are in very good condition.
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: not at this time.

I will be available for a call till 10 pm eastern time.

********************
I do not normally participate in the extra charge phone call services. I give my best answers in thoughtful writing.

Besides, you will have an assessment to print out. I did not send the pop-up ad/offer.

********************

The estimated retail values of your first editions are as follows in USA dollars per magazine:

Penthouse - 40

Look - 130

Oui - 20

Ken - 30.

I wish I had better news..

You might try studying this site on selling books as magazines can be often sold the same way.

http://www.internetbookselling.com/sell-old-books.html

Ultimately, to obtain these retail values we assume the piece or set is in good condition and that the final value depends on sale geographic location.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20% more than retail values.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.

I hope I have helped you.
