Linen backed. Excellent Grade A condition.
This is a large color poster of a painting of a soldier wearing a yellow shirt and throwing a hand grenade. It's very dynamic and has a strong diagonal line that conveys movement. The title "let 'em have it" is in yellow lettering across the top of the poster. The rest of the title runs along the bottom of the poster in large white lettering, "buy extra bonds." Right above the word 'buy' there is a little shield that says "we bought extra war bonds 4th WAR LOAN." There is a half-inch white border around this poster.
