How to obtain a file wrapper of an old patent

Hello.
 
I need to obtain a file wrapper of an old patent as soon as possible.  This patent was issued in 1996 and the image file wrapper is not available on PAIR system.  
 
Does anybody know the fastest way that I can get the file wrapper?  I am wondering if i can go to USPTO and copy the papers myself.
 
Thanks for your help!

One time I had to do the same, MicroPatent helped me on that.  It was even faster than I actually go and copy the files at USPTO.

Thank you for your reply!
We ended up using another firm and it took over a week to finally get it.  I will try MicroPatent next time.
