I have a copy of a Feb 1937 Wee Wisdom magazine in fairly good condition and was wondering if it had any value

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Like what?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

The front and back are a little torn at the seam about halfway up starting at the bottom

Your copy of a Feb 1937 Wee Wisdom magazine has an estimated retail value of $18-21.

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

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%-50% more than retail values.
