Printed in 1944, the poster prominently features the US Army Air Forces, a daring pilot and Lady Liberty-all the hallmarks of a a succesful propaganda piece. Created by the famous WWI poster artist, Howard Chandler Christy, this poster has everything going for it.
Many WWII posters were printed in the tens or hundreds of thousands but this poster had a print run of only 5,000! How many of the 5000 images printed 70 years ago remain and in this condition? Making this beauty even rarer is the fact that it arrived rolled and in pristine condition having never been displayed. You are unlikley to see this piece, in this condition, any time soon.
