''Chicago Daily Tribune'' home edition newspaper dated 3 November 1948 exclaiming ''DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN'', the most famous newspaper faux-pas of the 20th century. The Tribune so quickly rushed its printing that some of the type is even printed upside down. Most of the issues were taken off the stands when the Tribune realized its error, and only 2,000 were estimated to have reached private hands. Paper runs 26pp. Toning, darker to the lower portion of the front page, and chipping along right side and fold, with three small portions of paper loss. In very good condition overall, typical of this increasingly rare newspaper.
