Condition: Good vintage condition - there is some creases some of which has been repaired from the back. Furthermore there is a few signs of handling - please see pictures. In my opinion the poster looks great considering the poster is almost 100 years old. I am confident that it will look superb in a good frame.
When World War I roamed the planet and different countries where struggling to win the war, there was another war which was as important as the one fought on the frontline..
Back in 1917 and 1918, the United States government issued "liberty bonds" to raise money for its involvement in World War I. The loans was particularly subscribed to citizens but also interest groups (such as banks and investors) with interest to financially support the Allied war effort.
When the outcome of the war was clear the name was changed to "victory liberty loans". This can also be seen on the poster slogan "Sure! We'll finish the job". After a citizen had helped the war cause he/she was issued a pin so show of the patriotic deed - as seen on the farmer on the poster.
This poster is not just great artwork - it is also a rare piece history which is even fit for museum.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
