This vintage original poster was created by the artist James Montgomery Flagg to promote the 7th War Loan campaign during the closing months of WWII. The 7th War Loan was commenced just days after Germany had surrendered as the focus of the war shifted entirely toward defeating Japan.

Flagg’s Uncle Sam “I Want You for the U.S. Army” poster created during WWI is perhaps the most well known and iconic American war poster of all. For this poster issued almost 28 years after Flagg’s most famous I Want You creation, Uncle Sam returns and although he may have aged a bit he hasn’t lost any of his pugnacity. Bedecked in his trademark American flag suit, Uncle Sam grabs a heavy wrench, rolls up his sleeves and sets off to take care of the remaining unfinished war business with Japan.

This poster has been professionally backed to linen and expert repairs have replaced small amounts of paper loss at corner tack holes. A few small scuffs and abrasions have been skillfully mitigated. The poster shows some toning. Overall condition is very good for this vintage original.
