This is a terrific vintage pair of newspapers, both published by the Rocky Mountain News of Denver, Colorado.
One paper is dated February 21, 1962, and is the Souvenir Orbit Edition featuring the great news of the day, John Glenn circling and returning safely to the earth. The second edition features the followup flight of Scott Carpenter and is dated May 25, 1962.
Both papers are in very good condition, having only yellowed a bit over the years. There is some very slight random wear on some edges, but that is to be expected for something over 50 years old, even in storage.
These would make great gifts to someone born on those days, or in that year. They would make great additions to any historical collection, too!
