I noticed this ends later today and was wondering what the community thought of its authenticity? Seems to be a quiet listing thus far with only 2 bids.

A good sign is the fold marks. These posters were issued folded, not rolled up in a nice little tube.

Well, I am sure this will get the attention you felt it was lacking... :)

I think it's legit but, folks are watching where expendable income is going right now. That is easily a several hundred dollar poster. But, can you eat it? Pay utilities with it? buy TP with it? I think if you got expendable cash right now, you will find some incredible deals. Or, you may want to hold off so you can eat tomorrow.

That was my thought too Kurt, that the folds were a good sign. The only down side for me is being unable to get it framed since everything is shut down. I like to archive frame my paper items as soon as possible to help secure them.

These posters (Reproduction) are available through the USMC museum in Virginia, it very well may be an original as stated the folds are correct for the vintage.

I have this poster ( the real deal ) and it was indeed folded. Purchased in an antique shop years ago.

I was told that WW2 posters are folded, WW1 posters rolled. 13 watchers, I doubt it will go for the current bid but who knows?

yes the folds are a indicator but the govt printing info at bottom is also a good indicator to look for.

If authentic, a fair price. I paid ~ $300  for that one and the 6th War Bond Drive, showing a scowling Marine looking at a graphic of Japan and saying NEXT!

 

From what I could find, these were folded in half across the center to be mailed.

Info:    https://digital.libr...7531/metadc584/

 

 

Important info is the printing at the bottom:

 

Printed across bottom margin of the 7th War Bond Drive:

         "US GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE      1944 – O-610930 WFD 958        OFFICIAL U.S. TREASURY POSTER      WFD 958"
