The main differences between these two posters are this poster is not a foil, it is on heavy stock paper, and it has the star wars logo that was used throughout all of the films. The 1st release has a different “W” in the “Star Wars” text on the poster. To see the differences follow the above link. This 2nd release is actually considered to be rarer than the first and its historical significance in the film industry is unquestionable. This poster symbolizes the first gleams of excitement transmitted to an eagerly awaiting audience.
This particular original teaser star wars poster is in very good to fine condition and has been linen backed with touch up work on the blemishes that has been done well by a different conservation stdio than ours (see below detail photo). The linen backing is done well and has been trimmed all the way up the margin of the poster. The poster itself doesnt have any teasrs or missing paper, but it does have some strong wrinles that have caused paint to wear along them, generating stress lines throughout the poster.
