Greetings. This newspaper had been kept by one family all these years. It had not seen the light of day for a very long time. It's a cloth-like material--in better shape than other types of paper of this age. T are other interesting things in the paper but the main articles are the Lincoln assassination and one or two civil war related articles. The actual color of the paper is like that in photo 3. Have any questions? Insured shipping is free. Thank you.
