... it's not a poster, i believe it's a front car sign. ... 21 and a half inch lateral, 18 or so inches top to bottem.

... white carboard construction with black printing.

the lower right corner has been neatly severed at a right angle. (possibly where it was mounted on a car fender)

it has some water foxing at the top and a little bit at the left bottem.

i believe we can save what is left ....
