    Soviet Anti-Lynching Poster.
    Linen-backed poster
    Poster: 10.5" x 14.75"
    Mount: 14.75" x 19.25"
    Moscow, U.S.S.R.; 1930

    A poster in Russian with English translations on the poster. Featuring an illustration of the Statue of Liberty with a lynched black man hanging from her torch. At the top of the poster it reads, "Bezbognik oo Stankar (The Atheist at His Bench)...In 'Gods Country', that is, the United States of America." Below the image, "The lynching of negroes, - the basest and most abominable form of expression of race hatred, has thrived under the Christian religion which exploits and is man-hating through and through. For the bourgeoisie and the clergy lynching is the highest expression of culture and Christian morals, an act pleasing in the sight of God."

    Condition: Flattened folds and creasing, with light toning. There is chipping at the edges, and repaired tears and paper loss. It appears that the angel holding the flag on the right edge has been professionally restored.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
