Here is what I have. The paper looks like cotton rag and is crude. The printing is whole and the text is bold but around the text are what looks like newsprint dots. Here are some pictures. I got this out of an old small town church that they had a rummage sale in.

I am hoping that this was a newspaper insert from the 18th century. Either that, or the copy was trimmed. The frame i found it in seemed to be homemade but for the exact size. Possibly cropped? Missing a couple inches for diameter respectively

I (we) appraise real estate here on this forum, so nobody has a clue.

But if I were to guess, that is an original copy (they made two) and worth.....

Take it to your local history library and they are likely to know who could take a better guess
