    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    As we deal with over 8 million original newspapers in our Archive, dating back to the early 1900’s to present date, it is only when your newspaper is picked by a member of our Archive Team will we know the condition of that newspaper. We do try our best to repair the newspaper, however unfortunately on occasions this is just not possible and the paper becomes unfit for purpose and becomes unsellable. If we have alternative newspapers for your requested date, we would always advise these to you.

    On this occasion, your order was cancelled and have a full refund, which has been issued to you.

    Please do accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    If you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us on 03300669700 or email us at info@historic-newspapers.co.uk

    Kind Regards,
    The Historic Newspapers Team
