Default I found something

So my mother passed some time ago, she was 90 and had lived a full life, the body just got wore out. Since she passed I have been dealing with what she had as far as possessions and yesterday I found a box with all the newspapers from Presidents Kennedys death. These newspapers are all dated Nov 22nd and Nov 23rd 1963. She must have made my father cut two pieces of 1/4" plywood to sandwich the papers. They are in perfect condition.

What do I do with them ?????

I don't think they are of any significant value as I believe there are many such saved newspapers about Kennedy's death. I would just continue to save them.

Look up their value. They may not be worth much though. I've seen WWII newspapers go decently cheap. Personally, I'd keep them for their historical value.

You would need the entire newspaper for any value. Do with them what you want.

If you have the entire newspaper they may be worth something. Try a coin collecter. If they don't collect them they will know who might. You can maybe get an idea of value and try to put them on e-bay.

What is this Texas place you type of?

Good luck.

depends on the paper itself. some are collected others arent. rarity AND desirability are the keys.
