I have more issues from the 1915 - 1919 era, so check my auctions over the next few weeks.


USA SHIPPING $6.00 ... The USPS will not allow magazines with ads (even old ads) to go by media mail so shipping is by priority mail.
If you win more than one I will combine shipping if you wait for my invoice.

FOREIGN SHIPPING use the calculator. First class foreign is not insured and is at buyer's risk. Priority foreign includes insurance.

PAYMENT, SHIPPING SCHEDULE If you pay by Paypal and do not receive a confirmation of receipt from me within 48 hours, send me an email saying you have paid, because occasionally one of my email sites loses a message.
I ship within 4 business days of receipt of payment (usually less). Additional delay is due to the USPS or foreign postal offices.
