Click on full description to see more pictures! DescriptionThis is arguably the most famous and sought after newspaper of all time. When the decision to print this paper was made, returns were coming in very slowly and time was running out before the deadline for the edition. The Tribune staff, based on the early returns, decided Dewey would be the next President. After the newspaper was delivered to the street, more returns came in and showed that Truman would be the ultimate winner and be reelected as President. The already delivered "error" newspapers were gathered for return by staff members sent out to pick them up from newsstands and homes in the Chicago area. It also has the paragraph of type in the upside down position as all original examples have since the newspaper workers in haste to get the edition to the newsstands made the error. Original editions of this newspaper are becoming increasingly scarce.  CONDITION This newpaper is still in very good condition, shows no signs of abuse but does have typical signs of age. Complete first section of newspaper (30 pages). Normal amount of yellowing yet evenly toned. Edges have typical amounts of tattering but no long tears. The front page is actually in very nice shape. "DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN" headline is still very bold and black. No handwriting to be found. Horizontal center fold shows normal signs of fraying (see pictures) but again nothing that really catches the eye. This paper is in original condition and there have been no attempts to restore it. If someone wanted to they could have a professional company press and repair it. But even as is this 60+ year old newspaper is in great shape! All in all this is a beautiful copy of an increasingly rare collectible at a great price!
