Known experts have said that 1/8 to 1/16th of an inch of difference outside of the base 27/41″ is ok and is not in itself enough proof to a revenge of the Jedi poster being a forgery. Differences greater than this, should be considered fakes, reproductions or forgeries.
#5 Paper Weight
A note on paper weight. An original revenge poster has a light weight and the paper seems to be thinner than other posters from this age.
There are numerous sources of information on the internet about points #2, 3 and 4. Follow the link to Moviepostercollector’s.com for explanation about these other points. The paper weight is documented by our conservationist and is an observation not made on other reputable sites.
