We get many emails and phone calls requesting values of newspapers found in attics, given by friends, or purchased at a yard sale, etc.  We try to be as helpful as possible and ask for photos if they use email.  This almost comical photo came in the other day–apparently with the thought that the headline was all we needed to see to determine a value.

    Hello Tim,
    I saw a reference to your site while reading the Richmond Times Dispatch this morning in regard to old newspapers. So I had a thought that perhaps you might tell us about our Civil War newspaper four color lithographs (as I think they are called) of battles which are framed. We got them at a backyard sale about 1970 which the owner said had belonged to his uncle who had once been a professor at a nearby college. My history-buff husband scooped them up as they were interesting. Is there an e-mail address so that I may send you a few photos?
