Item Description
23x24" black wood frame w/glass over cardboard mat which has 18x18" opening around the poster. This rare poster is the only one we know of and we believe of Australian issue. Text at top reads "And Me With Out A Pro.! Be Sly VD Is High." Great art depicts Donald Duck in an Australian soldier's uniform while behind him is an attractive woman in a tight slinky dress lying in wait behind a large plant. Donald has an exasperated look on his face as he is without a prophylactic. At the lower right is insignia "4MCD," we believe to be for the Fourth Medical Corps Division or 4th Marine Corps Division. Art is signed "Cyril Jones." There is a .5" dia. hole at center just to the left of Donald's head on one of the plant's large leaves. This does not really stand out but it could be restored and easily hidden. Poster has some lt. fold lines visible upon close inspection but remains totally bright and clean, displays great as framed. Fine. A rare and very interesting item for both war and Disney collectors. From the Deak Stagemyer Collection.
