I found this broken piece of old newspaper type set in the yard of a home that had recently been demolished. After some research I discovered it was from WW 2 era. The piece is of course in reverse but I took a picture of it in the mirror to make it easier to read. It was the headline to what "War Bonds" were used to purchase.

What are the odds the rest isn?t there? It?s got to be.

It would be very cool to have the plate (all if possible) and that ad (especially if you could find an actual on newsprint) in a shadow box.
