These Historical Newspapers Hold Great Value

Like most people, you read the newspaper, throw it in the trash, and never think about it again.

Before you do this, it may be a good idea to consider if it could have any historical value in the future.

Here are seven historical newspapers that are worth anywhere from $200 to $2,000:

·      Chicago Daily Tribune, Dewey Defeats Truman, November 3, 1948

·      The Stars and Stripes, Nazis Quit, May 8, 1945

·      The New York Herald, Assassination of President Lincoln, April 15, 1865

·      Honolulu Star-Bulletin, War! Oahu Bombed By Japanese Planes, December 7, 1941

·      The Boston Daily Globe, Titanic Sinks, 1500 Die, April 16, 1912

·      Fitchburg Sentinel, Lindbergh Is Reported Over Channel, May 21, 1927

·      New York Daily Mirror, Guilty Death For Hauptmann, February 14, 1935

Maybe you have some of these old newspapers – among others – hiding in your basement or attic. Or maybe you have one or more hanging on your wall as a historical memento.

If you enjoy collecting old newspapers, these seven are a perfect addition to your collection. In addition to shopping online, search local estate sales for hidden gems.

And of course, don’t be so quick to trash your newspapers in the future. Holding onto historically significant editions could make you some money in the future.
