Perhaps the best "man walks on the moon" newspaper to have...



Item # 209070

July 21, 1969

WAPAKONETA DAILY NEWS, Wapakoneta, Ohio, July 21, 1969.
 
* Best issue to have on this historic event ?
* Neil Armstrong's hometown newspaper


A great issue on this significant event as this newspaper is from Neil Armstrong's hometown.

Typically issues of this date carried a headline "Man Walks On Moon" but this hometown newspaper personalized the report honoring their local hero with

* NEIL STEPS ON THE MOON

This is likely the only newspaper in the country with such a headline, and not being able to have a newspaper from where the event happened, this would be the next best thing!

The front page photo shows Neil's parents. The issue is complete in 10 pages and is in excellent condition. A very scarce issue given the limited press run from such a small town.
