Always cool to find something you have never seen before.

 

This is a Pacific Stars & Stripes Subscription stand with order blanks also for the Army Times, Navy Time, Air Force Times, Time Magazine, Newsweek and New York Times weekly.

 

My guess would be 50's-60's period.

Great find! From the details on the paper label I'm wondering if this was from around a US base area in South Korea or Japan, or if this dates just late enough to have turned up at one of the larger bases in Vietnam?

Based on the prices, I think 1950's would be correct.

 

Neat item.  Don't forget US Navy bases in the Philippines as well.
