Someone left a gift for the Memphis Flyer: A perfectly preserved Memphis Press-Scimitar distribution box.

On one hand, the box, which still displays a copy of the Scimitar's final issue dated Oct. 31, 1983, is an extremely nifty artifact. Then again, a time-traveling newspaper death announcement from a Halloween 30 years passed is also somewhat ominous.

It wasn't rigged with a bomb and no tiny Commercial Appeal employees were hidden inside so we brought it in. It's a fun mystery, and it looks good in the Flyer's sales department. It would sure be nice to know where it came from though.

If you'd like a better look at the MP-S's last hurrah have a peek below the fold.
