Wanted to know if I copy an old plat map that I cannot see any copyright symbols on. and sell them on cds. The plat is dated 1874. Can I do this or is it still copyright protected even though it isn't mentioned anywhere in the plat? Thanks, Jim

Anything first published in the U.S. prior to 1923 in the public domain, so you are free to use it in any way.
