Product Description

THIRTEEN WWII RATION TOKENS, COLLECTIBLES
THIS IS THIRTEEN WWII RATION COINS (INTRODUCED IN 1944) ALLOWING RETAILERS TO GIVE CHANGE BACK FOR RATION STAMPS. THE RED RATION COINS WERE USED AS CHANGE TO SEPARATE THE RATIONED NON-FOOD FROM THE FOOD ITEMS.

THESE LITTLE 16MM TOKENS WERE MADE OF VULCANIZED FIBER SUCH AS CELLULOID. THEY BECOME OBSOLETE ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE WAR. NOW THEY ARE COLLECTABLES AND A REMINDER OF PAST HISTORY.
