Now, here in Chicago, we found an appraiser of journals in a bookstore.
Great guy.  If we hadn't been referred, we never would have guessed that
anyone there would be willing or able to appraise journal issues.

So you might contact:

Spivey's Rare Books, Maps and Fine Art
825 Westport Road
Kansas City, Missouri 64111
Phone number: 816-753-0520

And if they can't do it, they might just refer you to someone who can.
Worth a shot, no?  Aside from that angle, there's also the answers we got
earlier about back issue dealers from two Serialsters.  Besides Absolute
and PSC, they listed



as well as the suggestion to Google "old issues magazines".  Maybe that'd
work.  SW
