    Pre-World War II Propaganda (U.S. Government Printing Office, 1941). Very Fine+ on Linen. Recruitment Poster (25" X 38") "Soldiers' Life," Tom Woodburn Artwork.
    As the war raged in Europe, the U.S. was preemptively trying to bolster their troop numbers in the event that America joined in the international conflict. However, many of the military recruitment posters continued with the same vein of advertisement that had been used for decades since World War I, touting the opportunities, training, and steady careers offered within the ranks of the armed services. Created by artist Tom Woodward, this wonderful poster was never folded and has only a tiny lower right corner chip and minor tears in the lower border prior to restoration.

    Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
