    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Navy, c. 1917). Recruitment Poster (30" X 40") "U.S. Navy Needs Men," Raymond Bannister Artwork.
    Painted by Raymond Bannister, the Navy Recruiting Office at San Francisco issued this striking poster, aided by the efforts of numerous patriotic citizens who were deeply interested in the Navy. It pictures a battleship in a heavy sea with her searchlights exposing the periscope of a German submarine. This scarce poster is a first time offer from Heritage and is featured in our great WWI collection, presented on the 100th anniversary of the Great War. Touchup has been applied to small tears, creasing, and a very minor bottom right corner chip. There were a couple of mild tears in "U.S." Very Fine- on Linen.

    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
