Rare High-Grade AOR 2.1 Seed Poster

Rare High-Grade AOR 2.1 Seed Poster

Item Description:

Known as “The Seed,” this famous poster is considered to mark the beginning of the sixties poster revolution. In 1965, The Charlatans were hired to appear at The Red Dog Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada. Band members George Hunter and Michael Ferguson designed this classic image for the occasion. Originally scheduled to appear from June 1 to 15, a poster was made with those dates, and it is known as AOR 2.2. This version, known as AOR 2.1, is much scarcer and has the corrected dates of the June 21 opening, and it is considered the “traditional” version. We last offered a Seed poster in comparable condition in our September 2016 auction, which brought $12,075.


Very Fine Plus. Slight handling; a crease on the lower left corner; a single pin hole in the lower right corner. Overall, one of the finer specimens of this rare poster we have seen.


A Buyers Premium of 15% will be added to the hammer price of all lots.
