This vintage original WWII poster was issued to promote the sale of War Savings Stamps and features the US Navy aircraft carrier USS Shangri-La (CV-38). The lower margin has a 1943 date and indicates this is an official poster produced by the U.S. Government Printing Office. The poster features the unique slogan “Bomb Tokyo With Your Extra Change” and indicates that $1.00 in War Savings Stamp purchases from every American would build the mystery ship, the USS Shangri-La aircraft carrier.
This vintage original poster was issued folded and shows light handling wear and toning from age. The poster has pinholes on the corners and two small quarter inch nicks off the margin on the left side not affecting the image area. Overall condition is very good.
