They will offer less than half of what it’s worth. Might be fun for the experience, so I guess there’s value in that

I have a lifelong friend that would know the ballpark that the poster would be in but because it’s signed it’s a one off, or one of a very few. That will push it into uncharted territory

You’re Ahab looking for a whale. The poster is one of a kind but the people that appreciate the significance of it are aging

You also might look into donating it to a museum. Depending on your financial situation it might be worth more as a tax write off

Something else to take into account, I suppose is this: Do you have any kind of Certificate of Authenticity in regards to her autograph? Just taking your word (I trust you completely, mind you) that she’s the model for it doesn’t mean it’s worth any more than the poster itself.

Thanks for the link, Don! This is interesting.

I hope you've got that story printed, in case the link goes dead.

That's only 1 of many links Steve, If you google Bernice Smith Tongate you'll get a bunch of links.

She was very well known for her having posed and then actually getting the Navy to change it's policies towards women.
