    They Give Their Lives (Lot of 6) 30" x 20" Artist: H. Dewitt Walsh. Printed to boost the sale of War Savings Stamps, a small W.S.S. logo is in the lower right. This is one of the few posters that mentioned the death of American soldiers. Most posters were about American victory, strength, and power. However, there were a select few that did play on the emotions of Americans by mentioning the lives lost overseas. A dark image of crosses on a hilltop coupled with the question of how much we have given is a perfect play on sight and emotion. A unique image that needs to be in any serious collection!

    Posters 1-3 - Good; major water damage, edges show major wear from rolling/storage, transference from being rolled together.
    Poster 4-Good; water damage stains on right edge, major tears on bottom edge, hard creases on x-axis.
    Poster 5-Fine; Ink rubbing in several places.
    Poster 6-Fine; severe tear on the bottom edge.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
