DescriptionWorld War I Propaganda (U.S. Government Printing Office, c.1917). Fine+ on Linen. Liberty War Bonds Poster (30.25" X 40.25") "Keep These Off the U.S.A." John Norton Artwork. War.
Offered is a propaganda poster designed by John Norton, which sends a powerful message with its image of bloodstained cavalry boots set against a black background, each bearing the tri-color German armorial insignia of the Imperial Eagle. A partially restored poster with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. It may have edge wear, mild creases, tears, small chips, and/or some stains. Restoration has addressed some of these issues. There is some soft warping in the linen, and the linen has been trimmed nearly to the borders. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades.
Sunday Internet Movie Poster: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 10 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 10 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:13. If no other bids were placed before 10:13, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 10 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 6 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:10. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
