Best of all Pearl Harbor newspapers...
Item # 618510
December 7, 1941
HONOLULU STAR BULLETIN, 1st EXTRA, Dec. 7, 1941 This is the "biggie", the issue announcing the bombing of Pearl Harbor most desired by collectors everywhere. A very well publicized newspaper but rarely found as a genuine issue.
See the photos for the terrific and historic headlines. This is the famous "1st Extra" edition being the earliest of the four editions published on Dec. 7.
This issue contains the earliest printed source closest to the attack, and is filled with eyewitness accounts. Huge & dramatic headlines on the front page: " WAR! OAHU BOMBED BY JAPANESE PLANES".
Complete in eight pages, never bound. Wear at the central fold with tiny perforation breaks and a small piece missing from the very right edge of the central fold, not affecting any type (see). Archival mends to the page 2 fold for strengthening, a few minor archival mends to inside margins. Otherwise in rather nice condition.
One must be very careful in buying this historic issue as 99% of those on the market, particularly on ebay, are later reprints with no collector value.
Rest assured this is a genuine issue, and a cornerstone newspaper for any 20th century collection.
