The advance style B. It was designed by Doyle, Dane, and Burnbach. This is the final advance for Star Wars, and it usually the easiest to find of the advances. The background of this poster is actually blue not black. Usually most of the copies being sold today are fakes, and they are usually rolled. The easiest to identify fake is missing the GUA union logo in the bottom border which is easy to find on an original. (See image below from Star Wars Galaxy Collector #5.) Other fakes might have some of the lettering smeared, so be careful.
