OLM does not sell our original LIFE® magazines by grade (i.e. good, fair, etc.). All of our LIFE® magazines are individually inspected and approved only when they meet the standard of  “the are the best of the best.”

Please keep in mind that original LIFE® magazines have been in circulation and some are over 80 years old. Each has its own history and character after having been read on the train on the way to work, traveled home from World War II, or stored in grandma’s attic.

Our vintage LIFE® magazines are the complete, original magazine.

Regarding mailing labels, please note that the cover images you see on our website are sample images that do not show mailing labels. However, most LIFE® magazines have a mailing label. From 1936 through the mid-1940s the mailing label was printed on the lower corner of the back cover. From the mid-1940s to 2000, a paper mailing label was applied to the lower corner of the front cover.


Our policy is simple: Satisfaction Guaranteed or your money back (for up to 30 days after purchase).
