A new entry in the top 10 most valuable film posters

Experts believe it is the only one in existence.

“In only a few instances did the studio produce a teaser for their horror greats but when they did they were often outstanding as is this poster," explains the auction house, adding it is "perhaps one of the most impressive of all of the great Universal horror posters".

"Even the most advanced collectors have never seen this poster in person."

A 1935 Bride of Frankenstein lobby card made $51,385 while a 1951 one-sheet for The Day the Earth Stood Still achieved $21,510.
