I've a friend who owns a copy of the first issue (Volume 1, Number
1)of Reader's Digest dated February 1922.  She wants to sell it.  How
can she determine what it's worth?  How can she locate a collector who
might want to buy it?  She's tried e-Bay with no success.
There is no answer at this time.

Asking prices on range from US$1000 to ~$300.
Value depends on who is willing to buy it. 
Condition is extremely important to most collectors, and you need to
find someone who wants it, a dealer will only pay a small fraction of
the 'retail' price.
Your best bet may be to approach an auctioneer in your area who
specialises in books for an assessment and recommendations.
