Please note that the paper was originally folded for delivery and will be shipped folded (as seen in the photos).
These newspapers are in good condition with wear appropriate to their age. Since they have many folds, they may have small separations along the crease lines or at the crease intersections. They may also have smudges, stains, creases, foxing, or small tears which are typical of old paper items. Please review the included photos of the actual items to make a complete determination of their condition.
