Old USMC recruitment poster? WW1?


Recommended Posts

Got this yesterday, i think it may be a recruiting poster or something from the recruiter's office. Has a tag that states it was from a bank in Missouri. Any ideas?

Yes, WWI era and desirable. Artist is a well know illustrator, Joseph Leyendecker, who was a German born artist highly active in doing magazine covers of the era. To poster collectors he is known for doing a number of Marine and Navy recruitment posters during that era.

As a Missourian, does the tag say which bank in Missouri?

I am always in search of Missouri Medals and Items. This could be anything from WW1, WW2, Prisoners of War, Ephemera, or anything pertaining to Missourians.

 

I thank you for your time and consideration.

It says Richland bank of Morrison Missouri, i looked it up it was around from 1915-41. I'm not sure if it was in Morrison missouri though.

Yeah, Morrison is on the opposite side of the state from me, near St. Louis. 
 

It’s a great find, very well done. It seems nicely framed, good job.

Also strange that the box doesn't say "US Marines" at it should from all the other ones I've seen

Mine is identical 18x 26,  The only ones of this type, or pictures in 2 of the 5 references on WW1 posters I have, I've seen have no inscription in the box. One of Leyendecker's classic posters

There is a similar larger poster that does have U.S.Marines on it with the imagery above in the middle surrounded by USMC scenes

Thats the one i found, i thought mine could have been cut down from one of those but the inscriptions weren't the same so i was on the fence.

No we have the smaller original version, While the larger one is about +/- 30"x40" ('d have to drag mine out again to measure exactly
