An interesting piece of wall art and an extremely unique gift, our First Crossword Puzzle Wall Hanging features a replica of the New York Times' very first crossword puzzle in a black frame. On Sunday, February 15, 1942, the New York Times added and ran their first crossword puzzle to keep readers entertained during the WWII blackouts. The now famous crossword puzzle has had four editors and is syndicated in over 300 newspapers and journals. To honor the first edition, a licensed reproduction of the first puzzle is handsomely displayed in a wood wall frame and includes four genuine Lincoln pennies from 1942. A copy of the puzzle is also included for you to solve! A fascinating gift for any history buff, collector or someone who enjoys solving weekly crossword puzzles, our crossword puzzle wall plaque includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
