We continue with our series on "Prices Realized". Below are a examples of actual prices paid
for a few scattered issues from the 18th century
. While not the highest valued from the period, they certainly are "premium" issues. Our hope is to provide a more-comprehensive listing in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, for what it is worth...
The Constitution of the United States... CONNECTICUT COURANT, Hartford, Oct. 1, 1787 ($17,500, 2007)
The Boston Massacre... THE ESSEX GAZETTE, Salem, Massachusetts, March 20, 1770 ($9,250, 2006)
America proclaims independence... THE AMERICAN GAZETTE OR, THE CONSTITUTIONAL JOURNAL, Salem, Massachusetts, July 23, 1776 ($9,750, 2007)
The premiere (British) issue of the war... The Declaration of Independence… THE LONDON CHRONICLE, August 17, 1776 ($9,750, 2009)
