Thank you for taking interest in this item. Hello folks, PLEASE BE CAREFUL when looking for movie posters as not all online may be authentic. I did some research and this poster is not an original from 1978. Instead, it is an official rare 1992 Killian Reprint.
It is in rather excellent condition with no tears, rips or creases. It has been stored rolled up and in a smoke free, climate controlled environment. There is some black smudging on the back of the poster, which can be seen in the pictures provided. In my research, some of the quick ways you can tell the originals from the fakes, reproductions and official reprints (like this one) is the markings you see on them.In July 1978 Lucasfilm issued two versions of the Style D (Circus Poster) Star Wars one sheet poster. The second was from the 20th Century Fox Studio without the NSS information but with'ONE-SHEET STYLE "D"'. Notice that the'D' is in quotes. Then, in 1992, Killian Enterprises was authorized to, and did, reprint high-quality full size (27x41) posters using the original printing plate. There were two versions of this poster.
The most common variance was the folded Star Wars Fan club. This one was identical to the original 20th Century Fox Studio release back in 1978 however in the bottom right hand corner the caption reads ONE-SHEET STYLE D. And there was a serial number (1 of 10,000) with that.
Notice that, unlike the original, the D is NOT IN QUOTES. It is just like the Fan Club edition, however, there is not serial number associated with the poster. Although rare in its own right, this is the version that is so often confused for and/or passed off as the original. This is not a stock photo like some will use.
