How To Detect Reprints,
Copies and Forgeries

by Jim Lyons

The following pages are Chapter Seven of my book, "Collecting American Newspapers", in its entirety. While written especially for newspaper collectors and historians, the information applies equally as well to collectors of most types of ephemera.

For clarity, the illustrations on each page have been enlarged and repeated below the text. However, because of the need to be as clear as possible, the download time is pretty long.


Unfortunately my scanner will not reproduce the pages as they look in the book, which was professionally typed. The lines are scrunched together and much harder to read here. I regret this very much but don't know what to do about it. However, the enlarged illustrations should be able to make the separate points clear.
