This is the style E or Birthday poster. It was given to theaters who were still running A New Hope 1 year after it's release. It is one of the most sought after posters of all. I've heard estimates of the print run ranging from 700 to 2000. I think the actual number is close to the high end of this range making it somewhat more common than a near mint Mylar Advance. It is still extremely rare and difficult to find. Most of these are rolled but there are folded ones as well. It was photographed by Weldon Anderson and designed by Tony Seiniger and Associates.
