On November 2, 1944, the U.S. launched the Sixth War Loan Drive in an attempt to raise funds to finance the fighting in World War II. The sale ended on December 16, and in that short amount of time, the U.S. was able to raise over $21 billion through the sale of war bonds. Much of the success of the program was due to the effective advertising campaigns that encouraged Americans to buy war bonds. The Buy War Bonds Pin Up Metal Sign gives you Baron von Lind’s imagined version of one of these classic advertising signs baked onto an American steel base. The sign shows a pin-up girl hammering a Support Our Troops sign onto a picket fence and encourages the viewer to “Buy War Bonds!” while showing off the pretty lady’s stockings.
Measuring 12 inches by 18 inches in size, the Buy War Bonds Pin Up Metal Sign weighs 2 pounds and has been vintaged to make it resemble an antique.
