In the background there is an American flag, another flag, an airplane in the sky, Soldiers with guns fighting, a tank, and a Navy war ship underway. We are not sure where this sign was originally displayed or used.
The poster or sign measures about 15-7/8'' x 20''. It appears to be in good condition with some expected age discoloration and a edge segment on the upper right side missing. There are also some small white scuff marks and edge wear as pictured. By the discoloration on the back, it appears that this was once used as the backing cardboard in a large frame. Because this is made of a stiff or rigid cardboard it must be packaged and mailed flat.
