    I recently moved into a house and found some newspapers in the loft. I know they are almost definitely reprints but I thought I'd ask you guys what you think. Are they worth selling?

    Many thanks.

    Hello, I think they're replicas which came in a set with an old documentary, I have some myself somewhere.

    Hi Vanessa,
    Thanks, are they worth putting on ebay or should I just give them to someone? I've no idea if they have any value.

    Many thanks.

    I can't speak for the other papers, but the Daily Mirror ones were issued in about 1997 as a set of, I think, six. I have five of them and the ones in your photos are exactly the same. The reproductions are eight pages long. As I recall, there is some subtle difference between the original front pages and the reproductions. I'll have a poke about.

    Thanks Dave, appreciate it!
     
  6. The original Daily Mirror had 16 pages. The April 16th 1912 issue has been published as a reprint from the 1970s has all pages but there are other differences to the original 1912 one.

    I'm afraid I don't know whether they're worth selling. The ones I had came with a double vhs set, one video was a documentary and one I think a dramatization but I can't remember the titles. This was 15+ years ago.

    Regards
