We loved it!

A fantastic service and a great way to celebrate an historic occasion, in this case our son’s 30th birthday. Packaging is exquisite and the engraving came out beautifully, as did the contents. A great value and a tremendous keepsake!

I love everything about Historic Newspapers! I love their products, their customer service, their international shipping partner, and their quick response customer inquiries. The Only thing that I would like to see them improve is the expansion of their product base to include other top newspapers from other countries. Thanks for everything guys!
