How to Authenticate the Empire Strikes Back style A GWTW

To authenticate this movie poster be aware of several fakes and forgeries: (1) zig-zag (zig zag is written on the bottom margin), (2) gloss level and weight ( a forgery is very glossy and the paper is much thicker), (3) the poster doesnt measure 27 x 41″,  (4) GAU logo on the bottom margin is missing.

When performing your own authentication, know there are in fact two original versions of this poster. There is the version with NSS information on the bottom margin and there is the studio version without the NSS info. This poster is the original Studio version.
