        I'm sure my husband will love the puzzle, and we'll have fun putting it together. I do wish, however, that the puzzle box showed a picture of the completed picture.

            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!
