FYI, these prints mostly appear to be Cultural Revolution-era propaganda aimed at the Chinese People since about 1965 and which didn't begin subsiding until the waning months of 1976, when Mao Zedong passed away and the 'Gang of Four' fell from power, paving the way for Deng Xiaoping eventually to take over as Leader and institute reforms on a moderate path. I've seen indications in the last several years that such materials have increased in their collectability, though don't follow that market.

Best regards,
