I have Meccano Magazines that includes everything from #1 except that #1,2,3,4,6,7,8,11 are repros. They are ALL with covers and are as near mint as makes no difference! Most are bound by "Duncan's" who were the original binders for Meccano Ltd., but some are bound to look the same as Duncan's. Details are: Bound from issue 14 (Sept/Oct 1920) in BLUE to end of 1927, (These are not Duncan's bindings).The rest are bound in MAROON to end of 1972.(A few of these maroon years' are not Duncan's, but look like them) The bindings are "professional" in quality throughout. Most are leather bound! I do not really wish to sell them - I would prefer to exchange them for other items I collect, such as Tinplate toys, "O" gauge locos, Flying model aeroplane items, (engines in particular, but also anything else including Model Aeroplane (flying sort!) magazines previous to 1955). I can provide digital photos of anything over the 'net if required. Offer me anything else if you like - I can always say no! I also have Electron, Kemex, Part#167 ( all near mint and boxed) etc. I might consider loose copies of MM's in similar condition and period, in part exchange too if of any help! David Lloyd-Jones. I am based in the UK and can be contacted on dlj@dlj702.com (listed 2-2-01)
