Spotted this at an antique mall. How can I tell if its original? Marked as such but we all know how that goes haha! What's a good price? Asking 10 on it

Is there an easy way to tell? There are other ww2 ones, one for the army air corps with a B-25 for $5

was it removed from a magazine, or done as a poster? Magazine ad would have something else on the reverse, while a poster would likely be marked in the corner with repop date or manufacturers label.
With a magnifying glass, fine dot print uniformity would show up and I doubt it was in use for large prints then.

Thank you, it looks like it's from a magazine as it is about that size. I'll go back and take a look. If it doesn't have the dots it should be considered a fake?

I went back to the booth and it has something printer on the reverse and the dotted color print. I bought them both and found out they had 15% off as well. Will post photos later of both

Good find. These type of ads were popular in Magazines during WWII. I've picked up several in antique stores too. They are definitely a neat part of that time period we're all interested in.
