The paper came exactly as described

The paper came exactly as described. The certificate that comes with it has the note I provided to be included with the paper as expected. My father truly enjoyed reading about what was going on in Texas on the day he was born. I was surprisingly pleased.

The book is beautifully presented and my husband was very pleased with his birthday present. Unfortunately, the early papers/pages, are so poorly printed (perhaps over printed) that they are blurry and unreadable, even with a magnifying glass. The later date papers/pages are readable and consequently very interested.
