The Second World War presented numerous challenges for the American people including conserving food, gas and even clothing.

To manage the conservation efforts the United States government created the Office of Price Administration in 1941. One of it's initiatives was the Food Rationing Program started in 1942.

As part of this program each citizen was provided with a ration coupon booklet.  Individual coupons would be redeemed when purchasing food items.

We were fortunate to come across full ration coupon booklets from 1942 while doing some antiquing north of Philadelphia.

The prints are matted with a double window to present both a full page of the original coupons and an original coupon booklet cover.

When ordering a print all you need to specify is the design featured on the coupons.  Five designs are available - Fighter Plane, Artillery, Tank, Aircraft Carrier and Lady Liberty.
