1909, National Geographic
tag # 000380
So I learned a valuable lesson a few weeks ago on Ebay,
even when you are writing descriptive stories about
your favorite objects, you have to be exact as possible.
I had a stack of old national geographic magazines.
I wrote a story about how I came across the stack while
trying remember the approximate dates of issue.. I then
put the stack on Ebay.
Within minutes of the listing I started to receive
frantic e-mail asking the exact dates, times, maps,
articles, pictures of each of the magazines which I
had listed. I wasn't at home and had no idea which was
which, I only knew that they were old.
Well a bidding war ensued while I looked up the dates
and such. When I updated the the Listing all of the
bidders retracted their bids.. I guess they were looking
for a particular issue..
Well I just found this particular issue tagged on my
quickly emptying bookshelf.. Its from October, 1909
and its my only copy..
