This is a vintage original WWII poster was created by prolific illustrator and portrait artist Cecil Calvert Beall. This poster is one in a series that Beall did for Collier’s magazine each featuring a different medal issued by the United States Armed Forces. This particular image graced the cover of the December 11, 1943 issue of Collier’s magazine and features Cadet-Midshipman William M. Thomas Jr. and the Merchant Marine Distinguished Service Medal he earned for action at New Caledonia November 8, 1942. The lower margin is printed Carey Press Corp. and “5-25-44”.

This is poster was probably issued as an advertising piece for use at newsstands, drug stores and other retail locations that sold Collier's magazine.  Overall condition is very good with bold color, some toning from age and light handling wear slight creasing in the margins on the corners.  There is a bit of light scattered foxing in the margins in places.  Overall condition is very good.
