Front page of the Seattle Times highlighting the Klondike Big Inch promotionKlondike Big Inch Program

The "Klondike Big Inch" was a promotional campaign by Quaker Harvest Oats in the 1950's. The deeds, for one square inch of Yukon land, were included in cereal boxes. Although it was a very successful marketing enterprise, the deeds were strictly promotional and never entitled holders to any actual land. The land has long ago reverted back to the Crown. Apparently, collectors are willing to pay upwards of $40.00 for the deeds.
