Thanks. Rather like significant Royal or Wartime events, most of the population cherished the newspapers that recorded the events. For example, there will be millions of copies of articles relating to the recent death of The Duke of E.. The death of Wellington of course was very significant and that of Churchill. Consequently , although when found these seem important pieces of 'ephemera', they are not as rare as one might hope. Can you forward an image please and do you know which newspaper it is? Greg
Do you have the complete newspaper with front page and title? Greg
Thanks. I look forward to that. Greg
Looks genuine. Is it complete do you think and are the folding sections together or ripped apart? Obviously the folding has resulted in slight damage. The discolouring is natural and actually underpins the authenticity. I do think that in the right auction it could attract interest. Greg
Definitely something to offer at auction. You could try Ebay but if you do, make a very good job of an accurate listing so that when people get them they do not argue about condition or completeness. I dont think that complete copies can be bought for less than £150/200 in good condition. There are auction houses that specialise in printed material. You should find them online.
That all sounds absolutely as it needs to be. Auction will be the best way forward. Do you need some advice regarding where to offer it for auction? If so please let me know what area you are in Greg
If you would like me to recommend an auction house please be a bit more specific about where you are. Greg
Thanks. then i think you should ring Anthemion Auctions. They are a very good established firm in Cardiff.
