REAL 1973 NSS TEST PROOF! Offered here is simply one of THE rarest authentic original James Bond 1-sheets (27x41 inches) to ever come out of the National Screen Service for ANY of the James Bond films - Sean Connery or Roger Moore!
That's an extraordinary statement, but it's true! This poster has only survived because it was personally saved by an NSS print shop worker who loved the whole Bond bravado, not to mention the films.
In other words, he was a "shaken not stirred" kind of a guy. He saved this proof along with another alternate style printer's proof. He said the alternate style proof really caught his eye because it reminded him of what Andy Warhol was doing at the time, and so he pulled it off the press to take home. That when he saved this finalized version as well. He rolled both proofs away and neither have seen the light of day until recently.This is a ROLLED NEVER-FOLDED original 1973 printing! Try and find ANY 1973 NSS 1-sheet rolled. Bond posters are practically nonexistent on the collector's market today. If you've been following prices realized on vintage movie posters, you'll agree; the exotically rare James Bond posters have gone out-of-site in recent years! Rarities like the uncut "Thunderball" Advance Quad, or, the "From Russia with Love" British Double Crown are among that elite group of valuable Bond posters I'm talking about.
As great and as rare as those posters are, they're NOT as rare as finding this 1-sheet rolled and never-folded. Full color version appears to be the same as the final folded released posters. I don't have a folded one here to compare it to, but it looks to be finalized short of a few printing defects. VERY FINE+ to NearMINT ROLLED NEVER-FOLDED UNRESTORED CONDITION. As I'm sure you know, NSS (National Screen Service) issued all the 1-sheets folded in 1973, and so to get any NSS issue rolled from that year is nearly impossible!To be in this great shape. It's a real beauty! I will be raising the price if it fais to sell quickly. It can crash regardless of any decision you make and can even crash regardless of any decision made by the company related to the stock - Leaving you with a near worthless piece of paper that won't inspire anyone! The magnificence of art and historic documents have an inherent value that relates to civilization and society.
