WWII pin-up nude photos

Can I list this package of small photos of totally nude female pin-ups on Military memorabilia. They are posed in outdoor settings, not suggestive, just nude and not at all like the stuff in "everything else". These are classic models in poses you would expect to see swim suits on them. Not what I would consider dirty pictures.
I can block out with scanner breast and genital area. Not close-ups anyway. Just classic 1940s vintage nudes.
If I really need to post listing in the mature adult section, I just won't list at all but don't want to lose my ebay registration. Thank you for your suggestions.

I would list it in memorabilia, and describe them for what they are.

I would, however, somehow cover up the objectionable areas on a few of the cards that you photograph. Just cut out some paper "undergarments" and lay them on the cards and photograph them.

If you don't show anything objectionable and describe them for what they are and do not use obscene language, I doubt that anyone would report the listing.

And, I think even if someone did report and eBay police pulled the listing, they would not NARU you for a first offense.

If you put the word nude in the title someone will report them. I had an auction for a Nude deck of cards from the 1950's, The nudes were covered for the photo, But someone reported them anyway.

I'm missing something I guess. What makes you think these are military? Can you show some examples?

WWII because circulated in CBI, dated on original 2/7//45 Chan. China and classic 1940 vintage model and photographic modeling style. Documented who to and from with Capt. Col. names; additionally not "graphically nasty" like most of listings I reviewed in mature adult, the only other place to logically list on ebay. Thanks for asking. That hadn't occurred to me.
