Goodwill Workers In New Jersey Find Original 1774 "Rebel" Newspaper

Lots of things come into the hands of Goodwill workers, and some are more remarkable than others. A location of the store in Woodbury, New Jersey recently found framed pages from an original 1774 Philadelphia newspaper with an iconic "Unite or Die" snake design on the masthead. The "Pennsylvania Journal and the Weekly Avertiser" paper, from December 28th, 1774, boasts three items signed by John Hancock, then president of the Provincial Congress, who pleads for the Colonies to fight back "enemies" trying to divide them. Bob Snyder of the New York auction house Cohasco estimates the newspapers' value at $6,000 to $16,000. Goodwill Industries hopes to sell it to help funds its educational and job-training services.
