War Savings Stamps .. something new to me


Recommended Posts

Perhaps these are common to others, but I just picked up something that was new to me.

A small printed card labeled  "This quarter will buy 12 bullets."  There are two slits in the card, which will hold a quarter.

Merchants would apparently insert a quarter from a customer's change, hoping to stir their interest

in buying a war savings stamp.  The place I found this one had a half dozen more of the same.

Kinda fun, IMHO.

Cool-  My dad (who was a kid during the war) said that most kids bought he .10 stamps, but the "rich kids" bought the .25 ones
