Advertising posters for
Shown below is a poster produced in 1939 that measures 29”x50.” If it had been in better shape, it might bring upwards of $2000. Unfortunately, this one had some significant exposure to the elements. The owner would probably be fortunate to sell it for $50 in its current condition.
