“NIXON RESIGNS” is the now famous banner headline announcing the President’s decision to step down from office.  Another headline reads: “HE URGES A TIME OF ‘HEALING’; FORD WILL TAKE OFFICE TODAY.”  Large photos of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.  Full details on the final chapter of the Watergate crisis and a report on the “Rise and Fall.” “Appraisal of Nixon Career.”

This is the original newspaper in fine, well-preserved condition. Very small tear in one headline, not detracting at all. A classic newspaper for any collection, and becoming tougher to locate every year.
