Censor's signature indicates that a poster bears the censor's hand-written signature or initials giving authorization to publish a particular image and the designated quantity.
The Polish political system from post-World War II through 1989 was a Soviet-supported Communist regime. Under this government, the poster was given exalted status but subjected to censorship. Poster designs were approved or disapproved both at the design stage and then again, before printing when the censor would give permission to print a specified number of a particular poster by signing and dating a sample printed poster.
