Uncle Sam Wants You: Huge Collection of First World War Posters up for Auction

A collection of about 2,000 posters from the time of the first world war, considered to be one of the world’s finest and amassed over more than a decade by a US army officer, will be sold at auction later this month, Guernsey’s auction house said on Tuesday.
The collection, which will go under the hammer on June 30 and July 1 during an online, unreserved auction with no minimum bids, includes the famous poster of a stern-looking, top-hatted Uncle Sam pointing a finger, above the words, “I Want You for U.S. Army”.
