There is a poster for FA 1 New Order / Ike Yard gig at the Ukrainian National Home, New York, 19 November 1981 which was filmed for the FACT 77 Taras Shevchenko video.

Until recently it was thought that the Factory America catalogue number didn't actually appear on anything physical. However, there was a poster which bears the "A FACT A FIRST" denotion. The poster design was a collaboration between Michael Shamberg and Ike Yard's Stuart Argabright. Stuart did the handwritten elements including the scrawled "NEW ORDER".

Many thanks to Mike Stein for his detective work and photography and to Stuart Argabright for shedding light on the history.
