Indiana Jones Egyptian Mail newspaper

I've been doing some digging into this and have not found much in the way of research, or at least any that is still out there. I can find that the Egyptian Mail was a real newspaper that existed in 1938 and I'm starting to try and access some of the online archives to see if any of the pages might match the one Sallah had.

But before I dive into the world of real newspaper archives, does anyone know if the IJatHG prop was a replica or just one cobbled together for the film?

Or has anyone actually made a reproduction of this in the past?

Any help or pointers will be greatly appreciated.

try the library as they often have newspaper archives but no sure if they will have Egypt ones
