Articles that were not rationed This varied from country to country. In general, everyone at home grew crops and some of their own food (if able to do so). For many city dwe…llers, especially those living in appartments, this was not practical. In the slums of London and other big cities in Britain this was impractical. (It wasn't possible for everyone to rent a small plot of land). Some farmers slaughtered animals for food, while others grew herbs, corn, beans, spices, potatoes, peppers that were traded at posts. Farmers made much money but only enough to keep the land and grow the crops. In the U.K. rabbit, hare, liver and kidney were not rationed, but often weren't available. Coffee was not rationed, and became very expensive. In other words, it was rationed by market forces instead of by coupon. Secondhand good were not rationed. (In Britain, there was a brief attempt to control the secondhand clothing (!) market, but it failed). In Britain photographic film was often very hard to find, as the entire production of the two biggest companies and about 40% of that of smaller companies went to the war effort, mainly for aerial reconnaissance.
$1 war bond in 1942 = $11 today
i have several German bonds or currency and would like to find out about them
You need to specify a country and a time. There's a widespread misconception that specific goods were simply either rationed or not rationed and that the amount(s) allowed the…n remained constant throughout the war. The tendency in all coutries was for more and more things to be rationed, and for the amounts allowed to be reduced. In Britain, for example, bread was not rationed during World War 2, only afterwards!
a coupon is like a ticket to get food or drink. At stores you would give in your coupon and trade it for a weeks food or so.
Depending on EXACTLY what you have, 50-1500 USD
Many of the countries who fought in ww2 were rationed. Food and gasoline were two main items that were rationed in ww2.
You would get a certain amount of food and clothes per week or couple of weeks in world war 2 if you were rationed.
Depending on how many kids,Adults, Seniors you had in your house it decided how much food you needed and how much you got.
Because there was a short supply of food and everyone needed to get their fair share of food
In World War 2
Because we needed the food for the troops abroad, so we had to ration it so there was no food shortage

Food ration books from 1943 sell for anywhere between $5 to about $100. If the item is in good condition, and it has a traceable provenance, it will likely be on the highe…r end of that scale.
every person living at home ie wasn't a soldier etc (as far as i know) had a ration book. children under 5, pregnant women and nursing mothers had green books, children betwee…n 5-16 had a blue book and everyone elses was buff coloured
