Revenge of the Jedi 1 sheet poster Authentication:

There are 2 styles the “dated” and “undated” version. The undated version is rarer and more valuable. There are <6,800 copies of the dated versions in the world Moviepostercollector’, and time has destroyed an innumerable amount already. Finding these posters rolled is more uncommon and thus they command a higher value.

A fake Revenge of the Jedi poster can be identified based on four documented  factors; #1 size (see below), #2 cloudy bottom right corner, #3 fold lines in the printing, #4 GAU logo on bottom right isn’t sharp or blue, #5 paper weight.

#1 Size

Authenticated Revenge of the Jedi movie poster sizes: (reference: emovieposter, cinemasterpieces)

  • 26 7/8″ x 40 7/8″
  • 27″ x 41″
  • 26 3/4″ x 41″
  • 27 1/8″ x 41 1/8″
  • 26 7/8″x 41 1/8″

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 carefully analyzed by a professional to determine if it is a fake, reproductions or forgery.
