Welcome to the November (Thanksgiving) Newsletter from Timothy Hughes Rare & Early Newspapers. In celebration of the Thanksgiving Holiday, and as a means of thanking our current members, we’d like to extend to you, for only the second time in our 40+ year existence, a website-wide discount of 10% off any website order through November 26th (see “Website-Wide Discount” below for details). This newsletter also includes links to Thanksgiving-themed posts on the History’s Newsstand Blog, our most recent catalog (#264), a set of highly desirable newspapers which we just released this morning, and a set of nearly 6,000 items already discounted by 50%! Please enjoy.

1) Website-Wide Discount – We often hear, “Put your money where your mouth is!” – a common challenge made to test the validity of one’s sincerity. It is with this in mind we strive to “authenticate” our appreciation for members of Rare & Early newspapers by offering a rarely offered, website-wide, discount. As a small token of our appreciation, please enjoy a discount of 10% off any website order through November 26th – regardless of the order total. The bottom line? If you find the item on our website, it is available for the discount.
  • To Use: There are three ways to use the discount: 1) place the order through the website and enter RN1117TD into the RN code field at check-out, 2) place the order by phone (570-326-1045) and reference the Thanksgiving Discount, or 3) place the order by e-mail (guy@rarenewspapers.com) and reference the Thanksgiving Discount.
  • Restrictions:
  1. The discount offer is for Website items only (no eBay, Amazon, or custom-quoted items). The discount also does not apply to S&H or to previous orders.
  2. The discount may not be combined with other discounts (ex. new member, Premium Member, etc..
  3. Once an order has shipped without the use of the discount, the discount may not be applied retroactively.
  • Exception to the above Restrictions – An exception to the exclusion of applying the “thank you” discount with other discounts is the items which are currently already discounted (as shown on the website) by 50%. There are nearly 6,000 items (not a typo) which we’ve already reduced in price by 50%, and they ARE available for the additional 10% discount off their already reduced price. They may be viewed at: 50% DISCOUNT
  • Can a share the discount code with others? YES!
2) New Key Items – As of this morning, we’ve added a new set of highly desirable items to our website. Whereas those which do not sell will appear in future catalogs, we wanted our members to be able to see them first – and yes, you may apply the 10% discount if you wish. They may be viewed at: NEW KEY ITEMS
3) Catalog 264 – Great items still remain from this recently released catalog. They may be viewed through the following links:
4) History’s Newsstand – Over the years we’ve had a plethora of posts with a Thanksgiving theme. If you’ve never been to the Blog, now might be a good time to take a gander. 🙂
  • Early in the new year we hope to have a fun contest in which we hope many will participate. More details will be forthcoming. Get your magnifying glasses ready!
Happy Thanksgiving!
Sincerely,

* Regarding our discounted issues… Why the extreme discount? Having over 15,000 items posted on the Rare & Early Newspapers website, with most links showing the most recently listed items first, there are undoubtedly a host of great items which simply become overlooked.
