"All paper is collectable to a rodent with an attitude."

(dealer commenting on a damaged-and chewed-1800's document)

What could be better than an artifact that actually tells you it's history, word for word, in print? Or how about an actual image of someone long gone, whose memory would be lost if not for your interest? Such artifacts are truly a unique look into our nations past. Plus, when a newspaper's over a hundred years old, even the advertisements are fascinating!
