    Description

    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Government Printing Office, 1917). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. 2nd Liberty Loan Poster (19.5" X 30") "Shall We Be More Tender with Our Dollars Than with the Lives of Our Sons." War. Artist Dan Sayre Groesbeck uses his expressive style and a quote from Secretary of Treasury W.G. McAdoo to direct an emotional plea towards viewers, asking them to consider what is more important in life: their pocketbooks, or the lives of their friends, relatives, and neighbors. A restored poster that displays signs of use. Restoration has addressed light edge wear, minor paper loss, pinholes, or small tears. Still visible are some smudges. The poster is starting to bubble and separate from the masa paper and linen in minor portions of the bottom left border. Most of the borders have been airbrushed. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
