Customer Question

I have an original 1st print Daily Mail newspaper.
No 1. London , Monday May 4th 1896.
A penny newspaper for One Halfpenny.
Not in brilliant condition,
But is it worth anything, as I wouldn't imagine there are many still around.
Look forward to your reply.

Hi Julie,

The very first edition of the Daily Mail was published on February 15th, 1896. This was the first in a series of registration issues, part of a dummy-run of daily editions that were printed from this date through May 2nd, 1896. It wasn't until May 4th,1896 that the first copies became available to the public, hence considered the first edition.

Actually there are quite a few around these have 8 pages. The average price these are selling for is 20-30 Pounds each, with a high price of 100 Pounds for a near mint copy.

I'm sorry that you may be disappointed in the value, but I must be honest with you.
