As with all collectibles, it depends. I am only speaking here of WWII Ration Stamp Books. The largest consideration is condition--not only of the boolket folder, but of the stamps thatmay still be inside. From recent purchases from several dealers int he stamp collecting business, purchase price ranges between $2.00 (few stamps) and $15.00 (many stamps). If you chose to sell to one of these dealers, the offering price would probably be about 50% of that.

The food stamp program was started in the 1960's.. no such thing as 1940 food stamps. There were ration stamps for food and gas in the forties during WW2

A ration stamp is similar to that of a food stamp. A ration stamp (or card) was given to the people of a country by their government and could be exchanged for food. This was mainly used during wartimes when things like bread, sugar, and coffee are in short supply and must be evenly divided among a group of people.

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 higher end of that scale.

The European countries involved in World War 1 introduced food rationing. Obviously, this involved issuing ration-books.
