Vintage poster help, more than valuation

Post by welshwookie »

I have a star wars poster that I bought second hand many years ago for my sons bedroom wall.
I am showing a similar item of Ebay just for reference, which is a 27x41 one sheet type B.
What I hope to find out, is how you tell if the poster is actually vintage, or from a rack we all used to flick through in w h Smith's or wollies on a Saturday with friends in town ?
Which am I right in thinking those would be a re issue?
Thanks Paul

Looks like a legit ROTJ style B one sheet. Just check it's 27x41 inches but I'm not aware of any fakes for this poster

From what I remember when I looked about framing it a while ago, measurements are not bang on 27 x 41 its a few cm either way.
But thanks for the feedback.

Sure everyone knows their stuff. Matt Fox is an expert in the poster field and might be able to help too
