Waffen-SS Recruiting Poster
A local estate find, no history except the veteran was AAF/AF.
A generic recruiting poster for the Waffen-SS. The red space at the base was for individual SS recruiting offices to stamp or print their addresses. The artist is H'o'ch.
According to ssrelics.net, which has an excellent section on posters, a small numberof these were found a few years ago and using those, a fake version has now been produced with a recruitment office in France printed in the blank space at the bottom. One can also find originals with SS Recrffices offices added. While the outright fakes are easy to spot, it is difficult to be 100% certain the recruiting office text was pre-1945 on the altered originals.
The poster is unmounted and presently is in shrink wrap for protection. It will be shipped flat USA or rolled for Airmail.
