It's easy to look at this poster and be reminded of the awful, lazy and sometimes even nonsensical clones it has spawned in recent years, but you can't deny the impact of the original. I didn't realise until reading the Swann Galleries description, but these posters weren't ever issued during the war and the few copies that remained were kept in storage. This copy, only the second in its size t ever be made available to the public is valued at $12-18,000.
