Great products for milestone birthdays

I've made two purchases from Historic Newspapers - one was urgent and the other wasn't. Both came in excellent time and were exactly what I wanted.

My paper came in a nice presentation…

My paper came in a nice presentation box, with authentication certificate, the paper is suitably worn for a paper of 25 years, but not used. The person I bought it for was very impressed with it. Would definitely buy again.
