:Among the most collectible World War II newspapers is the eight-page, 1st Extra edition of the Dec. 7, 1941, Honolulu Star-Bulletin. the first U.S. newspapers to report Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, the Star-Bulletin issued four editions featuring eye witness accounts throughout that day. Rarest is the one printed shortly after the attack ,it contains no pictures.

Reprints of the rare 1st Extra edition abound. Within a week, copies were sold to the public as historical mementos, many purchased by servicemen posted in Hawaii during the attack. Over decades, reprints have been offered as souvenirs at various tourist destinations including the Arizona Memorial, other museums and Hawaiian hotel gift shops. It is estimated tens of thousands of 1st Extra edition reprints were produced.

Experts who buy, sell and collect old newspapers advise that authentic 1st Extra editions show an obvious printing ink smudge between the "A" and "R" in the WAR! headline as well as an irregular smudge line over the paper's Flag.
