This booklet was designed to hold ration coupons and dates from circa 1942-1943.

The front features Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Pluto returning home from grocery shopping.

Space on the back was reserved for a store advertisement. Most of the ones I have seen have an ad for "Bristow's Food Market - the biggest little store in town," which was located in Clovis, New Mexico. I have seen one other advertising a store in New York, otherwise the majority I have seen carry the New Mexico ad on the reverse.

This is a fairly uncommon item and is becoming scarcer. The front:

And the reverse:

This one is near mint.

Hi Andrew.

Mint ones are becoming quite scarce now and I've watched the value rise of late. I'm thinking $65 - $75 these days for a minty one.

The book was published in 2000.
