    Original Honolulu Star-Bulletin 1st Extra WAR! OAHU BOMBED BY JAPANESE PLANES".
    17 ¼ x 22 ¾ -inches. Eight pages. Sunday, December 7, 1941. Many reproductions of this historic newspaper exist but this example meets all the points for the original editions including the printing flaws on the letters of the word "WAR" in the oversize headline. Additionally, pages two, three, six, seven and eight are dated but don't include the day (Sunday); pages four and five are dated and include the day, "Sunday December 7, 1941".

    Condition: Good. The paper has toned, as is common, and there are some chips, small areas of loss and closed tears along the right edge. There are remnants of old horizontal and vertical fold marks, the horizontal fold on the front page with some small holes, small closed tears. Still, all things considered, a good copy of this most rare historic newspaper.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
