Can anyone please give me a link to a website for people who want to sell or buy old 'headline' newspapers? Example:-

Titanic Sinking
First Heart Transplant
Death of Churchill
First Men on the Moon

I am interested only in websites based in Britain. Any help is appreciated.

Careful - so many of these have been re-issued as facsimile reprints that you may have difficulty distinguishing the real from the ( much later ) copy
The UK's biggest dealer in printed ephemera:
(I've spent many a long hour browsing in that shop!)

there use to be a couple of dealers with tables at the bolton antiques fair full of headline newspapers
these people might be interested though it isn't quite their usual thing

Thank you for your help and suggestions. I have collected these newspapers myself, apart from the Titanic ones which were saved from 1912 by my grandmother who used them line her underwear drawers, so I know that they are original rather than facsimiles.

I will investigate the websites & dealers you have suggested.
these people sell them


but I don't think they charge more for significant days than for others, so they might not pay more for them either.
they sell on eBay also - I sold some replica headline newspapers a while back, I feel sure there would be interest from overseas in the originals.
