    Default WW2 Seabees enlistment poster HELP........

    so every year around this time i make a trip to my favorite state Maine, this year is no exception!! so every year i go to maine i visit many antique stores and flea markets ! thier is one antique about 10 minutes from the house i rent !! so i guess a few years ago he got all the stuff from an admirals estate the admiral served in ww2 and before and after !! he cleans out estates in maine well after looking through his shop i saw a cup filled with full sized poster and i said what are these he said theese came from the estate the first one was an orignal ww2 seabees enlistment poster !! i fell in love with it but at 100 and not being a poster collector i passed it up at that price !! well i paid him a visit again 2 days before i left he said since i bought other items thoose dealing with other collecting fields of mine he would do 75 dollars on the poster for me and that was his lowest !!! well since the trip had already be expensive for me i passed it up ! so hears the deal i will be going back and visiting the shop i have a good feeling he still has the poster !! what is the poster worth and what is a fair offer for me being a young collector to offer him also do you think i can use the leverage that it has been their for well over a year or two ?? COndition over all is good but is is rolled up and will need to be framed and flattened!! also the one corner is a little worn but just a small crease !!! also if he remebers the admirals name could that add value ?? thanks for your help i have no pictures of the poster but i do have a picture of a copy of the poster of ebay and this will give you an idea what i have Name:  $(KGrHqN,!p8E-61FVErWBPw7CByB-!~~60_12.JPG

    This Seabees poster in my opinion is not worth anything near 75. I would think maybe 40 on a good day. The only way I could see this being worth 75 was if it was a metal sign. Items like this are funny some can be hard to find but not be worth much money

    thanks for the help on this one for the past year i have been wondering about this poster !! i am very surprised only 40 dollars i was hoping it would at least be worth 55 to 60 dollars !!!
