This vintage original WWII poster was created by the artist Bernard Perlin and issued by the United States Treasury in 1943 to promote the sale of bonds for the Fourth War Loan. Perlin depicts an strapping American soldier reeling back to fling a hand grenade at an unseen enemy against a hellish war scene of billowing smoke and barbwire. The poster’s tagline “Let ‘Em Have It - Buy Extra War Bonds” reminds Americans that they too can strike at the enemy by buying as many war bonds as possible.
This is the small format of this poster with just modest toning from age and light handling wear. The poster has no tape or pinholes and doesn't look to have been ever hung up or used. Overall condition is very good. This poster is folded once across the center as issued.
