Ration coupons is a plural noun. The singular is ration coupon.
The coupons or stamps or rationing cards all varied according to the recipient of the ration card. Children each received their own card. They were able to get more milk, dair…y products and meat than the adults could do. Cards for babies had more milk also. Each food item had their own squares or stamp locations according to the food item. See the link below to see what the rationing cards look like.

In times of scarcity, a command economy can use rationing, but then, it could be argued that any time rationing is used, that is a form of command economy.

Sugar ration coupons from World War II are no longer officially redeemable for sugar as there is are no entities to process the coupon and reimburse the grocer or supplier. Ho…wever, they are worth some negotiable value per se as a World War II historical or nostalgia item.

In World War 2
It is valid for redemption for one ration.
Ration coupons are paper documents indicating the amount of a certain item that the coupon holder is entitled to. Ordinarily, these documents are provided to the general popul…ation in times of shortage. In WWII for example, food ration coupons were given to U.S. citizens because of the immense food shortages brought about by the lack of food production in the United States at the time.
