Vintage Thingie Thursday – Ration Coupons

I’ve said before that I love vintage paper things! These ration books belonged to my great-grandparents.

I’m going to dome more research and find out how the ration coupons were used. I just can’t imagine…

See more antique finds at The Coloradolady’s Vintage Thingie Thursday!

My folks used ration coupons during WW2. I was too young to remember, but I have a few of them in some things that my mom left me. Have a good day.

I remember those days. That is a great collection from that time frame. I did not know you could still find them in this condition.

I remember them too. We used them during the war when I was a little girl. What a great treasure! Sounds funny, but growing up back then was the best time to be growing up here.

My cold is beginning to wane (I think). You have a grand night, hugs, Edna B.

I guess I'm not that old....don't remember rations coupons, but do remember only being aloud to gas up on certain days. If this country went to rations today I think we'd see riots in the streets

You are holding American history in your hands. How amazing. I've heard my older relatives talk about ration cards for this and that. I don't remember ever seeing one. Enjoy your adventure(s) to learn more about them.
