What's the Value of JFK Assassination Newspapers?

Blog Topics


Hi Crystal - I'm sorry, but we can't do appraisals of any kind. You could take your paper to an antique shop but, in all likelihood they would probably tell you that it's sole value is sentimental - not monetary. 


If it was so easy to view and see these JFK first day assassination papers then why did it take a team to track down many of these. Some never seen before.
Some from private collections, and other sources had to be bought as no "library" has them.

Researchers pay for originals that have direct quotes and bits of the story that doesn't always make it into library collections or archives. Call the National archives and they can give you a list of papers they don't have from 11/22/63

So when someone comes along and says don't worry about that junk, think twice!

HI Ed - Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts on JFK assassination papers. You are correct that there some rare birds out there, as the article indicates. Some of the most prized papers are the special editions that were produced as the news broke. That said, most of the papers that came out the next morning have almost no monetary value, but are interesting artifacts, nonetheless.

Hi RP - I'm sorry, but we are unable to do appraisals of any kind. As the article indicates, however, most JFK assassination papers have almost no monetary value. That doesn't mean that they're not interesting artifacts, just that you won't get much money for them if you try to sell them. Thanks for reading!


I found a original copy of the Dallas morning new november 23 1963 covering jfk' s assassinaion . I was doing a remodel of an old house close to Dallas. Any idea what it could be worth?


Assassination of our President like Kennedy. Landing on moon, largest number of hot dogs eaten. Haveing so many copies of the newspapers, has no real monetary value other than to say look w grandpa saved n show the kids in school check out how old n look at the way things were n saved from back in thier time. Its truly sumthing to be proud of, (our past on paper)

Armand, you get it. These papers are really amazing, interesting, and fun artifacts that can stimulate great conversations, but if you're looking for an investment, you might want to purchase something else. Thanks for reading and commenting!


I found a very well preserved newspaper from the rocky mountain times front page reads JFK slayer shot dead! Can't find any other one online like it.

Hi Alisha - Headlines like that really capture the intensity of that historical moment. Given the speed at which we consume news today, it's hard to imagine how events like the JFK assassination were processed by the analog media of the 1960's. Thanks for sharing that with us!
