I have found two Unique Newspapers This is the First of Two. This issue is from Oct. 27,1881, the Day after the Famous Gunfight at OK corral. There is an article about the Gunfight. It is about Three Full columns, but I only photographed the first couple of Paragraphs. The other paper is the last issue of the Epitaph.At the top of the paper is a renewal postcard for , I suppose the 1950's, a few years before it's Last issue. Here it is. Happy early Birthday (:-D)

    Your paper looks like a reprint-- probably done mid to late 20th century.

    Thank you Scott. I was hoping for an actual time period paper, but this will do. How can I tell if it is a reprint??
  6. scottvez scottvez, 11 months ago
    The color of the printing and the paper itself. I would suspect that it is also printed in the paper somewhere as well.

    Even if it's a reprint - could you rescan that first picture - mainly masthead - in particular the date of October 27 - which happens to be my birthday -not 1881 by the way. I would love to brag about my day in history.

    valentino97, I will be glad to re-post the masthead for you. I am still not completely convinced this is a reprint, but everyone is entitled to their opinion for sure !

    The top edge cut is also an indicator of modern printing-- you won't see that machine cut jagged edge on an antique newspaper.
