D-Day Front Page Acquired.

21 posts in this topic

I was searching around Craiglist the other day and found this gem. I waited for two days for a response from the seller and I was about to assume that it had already been sold when he contacted me about it. I went by and picked it up yesterday and I could not be more happy with it.

For who are unsure what you are looking at, this is an actual front page from the Detroit Times from June 6th, 1944, otherwise known as D-Day. I am extremely proud to own an item like this because of the weight that this day carries for so many people around the world. It is such a significant piece of history and I am sure there are plenty of people here that can appreciate it.

What I also like about it is that it's a paper from my home town. I wasn't born in Detroit, but the area where I grew up and reside reside would have both received this newspaper on that day. This item would have somewhat less meaning if it came from another state or another unfamiliar area.

It's very interesting to read the front page articles on here, and I can send anyone a blown up picture of this if they care to read them. Ironically, in the bottom left corner area of the front page there is a small box that informs the reader to save this paper because of it's presumed historical significance. Well, it's been saved alright, and I couldn't be more happy to have it.

That is actually very badass. How much did it cost?

I just bought a Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk. 1 rifle from 1944, stamped by the Canadian Forces with all matching serial numbers with a stamp from Long Branch Armories here in Toronto. I feel much the same way about it that you do that paper.

Thanks Weege.

It was actually only $45. I was surprised myself at the low price.

The guy also has V-E and V-J Day Papers as well. I'm going to pick those up soon.

You deleted my account and a few others, I obviously can't get it back, but I was just joking about how I wanted my old account back.

Then how did weege's account and mine get deleted? And there were a few others, I recall.

That wasn't 3pi's doing, I can't remember what the circumstance was but it wasn't him that did it.

Back on topic! I read the text, that's so badass. They mention us Canoooooks, that's tits.
