Carl...it's years since I picked up that Army stationary set, I probably paid peanuts for it! I assume this kind of ephemera is still relatively inexpensive?

 

i think it is quite inexpensive Ian , but you dont see a lot of it around !!  maybe now i might have started somthing !!!  :o

It certainly makes for an interesting sub-collection, especially as you've been able to link it to your overall USAAF collecting theme!

I love stationary kits and postcards as well and have quite a few sets.  One of my favorites is the one that you posted that folds out into a nice pin-up.  Thanks for sharing!

These envelopes looks like they were never used from 70 years ago.. I have seen them used in POW letters and these were from a bombardier grouping whom was a POW in one of the Stalag camps during WW2.

That is pretty much it. No markings that I can find. I guess soldier was lucky enough to be able to write from prison. I have seen a Stalag letter written home which included these envelopes.
