    Keep 'em Smiling! (Lot of 3) 42" x 28" Artist: M. Leone Bracker. Most collectors magazines and publications list this as one of the most frequently seen larger posters, and also one of the most popular images during the war. One can see why this image was so popular, the image of soldiers from all three branches of the military smiling together is very heart-warming. During a time when the public was being bombarded with images of war and suffering, a poster like this, with a message of hope and laughter would be a welcome sight. No collection should be without it!

    Poster 1-Good; severe tear on bottom edge, foxing areas on lower quadrant.
    Poster 2-Good; major tear on right edge, small/minor tears on edges, pinholes.
    Poster 3-Good; major tear on right edge (near base), dirt stains and residue on lower edge.
