I was wondering if anyone knew of any original Nazi Propaganda Posters floating around. I'm trying to purchase one, but I can't seem to find any. Thanks!:)

This is the strongest graphically in my opinion. However,some of the Soviet posters are excellent too.

I just discovered the joy of World War II posters, and I've found that I definitely want a collection of them. I'm very specific with my collections though, and I only want originals. Is there some way to tell the originals from the reprints that are so easily passed as the reals? Is there maybe a priceguide around on the topic? Amazon and Google only yield books with a few pictures here and there. Thanks for any help anyone could provide!

hello titancompu, good to have you aboard!

yes indeed, some of the art work in the ww2 posters is fantastic, to answer your question about prices, well im not quite sure as i have never come across a "priceguide" for them.....i would imagine that they may be found (as well as the interent) in antique shops, book stores and the like, and more then likely the prices would flucuate - depending on what type of poster it is or if the seller actually knows what they have in their possesion.

all the best,
andy

Welcome on this fine forum. Posters are sometimes on sale on auction sites, but I prefer to see them before I buy them. I like flea markets and militaria fairs

As for telling if it's original, an easy test is to shine a UV light on it - and if it's repro it will glow. The type of paper used is also a factor, but identifying this would be from experience.

Thanks for the welcome guys. will382, you know, I never thought of that? I had my first experience with blacklight authentication at a flea market yesterday with a guy who was selling depression glass. I'll definitely pick up a UV keychain and keep it with me. On another note, I also found a 1911 copy of the sheet music of "What are you going to do for our boys over there?" with a gorgeous set of red, white, and blue coloring of Uncle Sam on the front. I'll upload pics soon. No war posters, but close enough. :) Thanks for the tips guys!

I completely agree. Online seems a bit to easy to rip someone off. Besides, I like the adventure of the hunt!

I can't add much to what the guys here have said but-I only have one original WWII poster-which is a German Army (figures) recruiting posted for Machinegun troops. Mine is printed on a thick paper stock which is akin to thick newspaper paper. It also came wiht a double-postcard sized companion card with the same artwork and wording on it as the "parent" poster has.

I think this is a German poster from World War 2. Main reasons why I think so is because

-Every country around Germany is armed to the teeth while there is just a tiny German in Germany representing a meager 100 000 men.
-Most likely after treaty of versailles based on above asumption.
-The Austro-Hungarian Empire doesn't exist anymore on this map.
-Seems like some sorta propaganda poster for German 3rd Reich maybe?



I REALLY REALLY want to know the name of this poster so I can google it and find out more info about it. I found this picture from a book that was in really bad condition and it had some pages missing and there was no mention of name or anything about what this poster is. I hope this image scans up alright on the computer so you can can see it clearly. I also asked the school's librarian, at best she told me what time period and whom it was made by but she didn't know the name of the poster :(.

Thanks fellas.

And here it is.

Looks like the poster is from the crisis years and represents the voice to get germany a new and better attributed army after it was limited to 100.000 men after WW1 ..but its definately pre ww2 ..

wording taken from wordpress.com This map is interesting while it shows Germany in white surrounded by other countries with arms. This map puts at the forefront of Nazi ideology that Germany is in the right and must defend itself against all other hostile, neighboring countries. It is not revealed that Germany itself was a hostile country mounting up a huge army in order to “defend” itself. Calvin gives the following description of the map: “This visual from the mid-1930’s shows Germany in white, with the 100,000-man army permitted by the Treaty of Versailles, surrounded by heavily armed neighbors.”

No French occupation of the Ruhr (1920s) , demilitarized Rhineland (1936) and Saarland (up to 1935) , so it should be between 1936 and 1938 because Austria is not annexed on the map.
