It is our pleasure to offer the the collecting community the FIRST COMPLETELY UNIQUE specimen of this legendary issue to EVER appear at public auction. In addition this poster has also been independently authenticated on the back of the poster in pencil by noted concert poster expert and historian Eric King!
Mr King states this is a unique original printing of FD-24 which is not listed in his guide because it is the only known copy of this variant printed on different stock than the standard vellum used by Frank Westlake the owner of the Bindweed Press.
Mr King further explains that he does not list unique items in his guide. This variant was printed by Frank Westlake for himself and hung on the wall of his print shop. He later took it with him when he moved to Arkansas and it was left to his heir when he died.
