They have a very small value as millions of them were issued. Every person in the US had one. I've seen them go for about $5 a book in excellent condition.

What is the value of World War 2 ration books with all the unused stamps intact?

World War 2 Ration BooksThe war ration was not very high. The war ration stamps are very common and the demand for them in the collector's circle is not very high. A complete book might get $10, whereas partial books and single stamps are not going to be anywhere near as valuable. The sentimental value is of more value, as it reminds people of the struggles and their contribution to the war effort.I agree completely with the sentimental value when finding out that in 1945+, one had to use these stamps to purchase food. Families also had to do an inventory of what they had in their pantry, and they would have to actually subtract their stamps from the book, based on their inventory.Rationing ended in 1945; ration stamps obviously have no objective economic value. But they are collected by some people, so they have subjective collectible value. The best way to find the current going prices would be to search eBay auctions for stamps like yours.Fewer of the ration stamps were used in Books 2 & 3, making them less valuable.
