Smooth transaction: website was easy to use. I ordered the newspapers for milestone birthday. Delivery was fast ie within a few days. Newspapers came in their individual plastic wallet and own certificate of authenticity. Recipients were very curious and couldn’t wait to read what was in the news 100 years ago.nHighly recommended!
