I have never seen this poster before but I am sure that local newspapers had inserted works done by local artists. It may be an actual WW2 era poster..

Carl,

Looks good to me as long as it is the correct size. Sometimes having a copyright from a graphics company can be a red flag for a reprint of an original. In this case, I believe the Chicago Sun commissioned a series thru that company. Here is an ebay listing with several other prints all from the Chicago Sun. It list the size as 10.25"x15"

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1942-Chicago-Sun-Newspaper-Color-Supplement-War-Poster-Lot-WWII-Nimitz-Patriotic-/131027026567?nma=true&si=c6xfqAH7k%252FhkAHAlr5ZXE0odrVg%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

These make great filler for walls in a war room as they are inexpensive but pack a lot of cool factor. Really like the "V"ictory formation.

-Erik

I would say so. I looked and did not find anything where it was reproduced at a later time. You have to remember, stuff that sells for $5-10 is not going to be the target of a con-artist. So if reproduced, there will be an obvious marker. Frame it up and enjoy it.
