Only just realised that it’s 50 years since coronation day. At last! Now I can show you this newspaper that’s been tucked away almost exactly that length of time.

Of course, it’s the golden souvenir edition of the Daily Mail from the day after coronation day. Slightly faded, but there it is. All the pages printed in gold ink. My granddad worked at the printers in Edinburgh, and took a few home thinking they might be worth something. The bulk of the papers were printed normally, with black ink, but the Mail printed a limited edition of gold versions too.

 

So, what do you think ?
