    Challenging enough to take a few days, but not so hard that it is discouraging. My dad enjoyed checking out the news events from the day of his birth!

        The puzzle comes in a beautiful presentation box. I purchased this puzzle for my grandson. I chose the date of January 21, 2009, the day after President Obama's Inauguration. I wanted my grandson to have a "piece of history." I would definitely order another puzzle, the puzzles are fantastic! Excellent craftsmanship!

                      I got this for my aunt for Christmas. She is a puzzle-lover, and when I saw this puzzle, I knew this would be a unique and perfect gift for her. She is currently having fun putting it together (she said it is challenging!), and she is having fun discovering the news stories as she works on the puzzle. While most of the family exchanged gift cards, it was exciting to find a gift so unique and fun!

                        It is perfect for commemorating a date such as a birthday, anniversary...etc. I would describe the puzzle difficulty as moderate, challenging enough for adults, but without requiring a huge amount of time or effort.
