    No one probably did, if they did most likely very few. The only place you would expect them would probably be Craigslist or eBay and other sites. If I did see one and saw it for a cheap price, I'd definitely hop on that.

    That's not good unless you were really serious for the old style. I guess user preference.

    Dissent

    You're right about the quote. Here's what I found:

    Misattributed: 'Dissent Is the Highest Form of Patriotism'
    Tuesday February 15, 2005
    Google the phrase "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism" along with the name "Thomas Jefferson" and you will find thousands of Web pages attributing the sentiment to the third president of the United States. The trouble is, notes reader Dave Forsmark, who has been waging a one-man campaign to correct what he believes to be a blatant misattribution, "the quote is about two years old, not 200. It was made by [historian] Howard Zinn in an interview with TomPaine.com to justify his opposition to the War on Terror." Someone erroneously attributed the quote to Jefferson soon after, and now seemingly everyone is doing it.

    Based on some rudimentary checking, it appears Mr. Forsmark is correct. Can anyone out there cite an original document or speech in which Thomas Jefferson actually wrote or uttered these words?
