eMoviePoster auctions do not have any reserves or buyer’s premiums and have unenhanced super-sized images. Their descriptions include the pre-restoration conditions of all restored items and linen-backed items. Bruce Hershenson grades every restored poster and they offer a lifetime guarantee on every restored item they auction. If winning bidders find undisclosed restoration on any of the items they buy from eMoviePoster, they can return it for a full refund.
Three surprising results from the auction that closed April 5 were a Danish Waterloo Bridge poster for $525, King of The Wild chapter 2 one-sheet for $510, and a United Nations Fight For Freedom 20” x 28” WWII war poster for $440.
