War Ration Wallet - WWII (part 2) The Stamps

Ration stamps were the next section of this wallet.  They were numbered in order starting with "Ration Stamp No. 1".  On the front side of the stamps were military symbols such as a tank, airplane, ship, etc...


On the back of the stamp was the name "sugar", "coffee", "spare", "flour", etc., etc.


A gasoline and mileage ration sticker was required to be placed "...only in that location which conforms with the state law."  A "Gasoline Ration" and "Mileage Ration" sticker was included on the 4th page of the wallet.  There is no information given as to where the correct location on the "vehicle". 

Let's see now; sugar, coffee, and flour to be rationed.  I wonder how many cups of coffee it was good for on a typical day?
