      Hi there is a good article about the red vulcinized coins at this link. http://www.scvhistory.com/scvhistory/signal/coins/soltaylor080908.html or just type in war ration stamps and OPA tokens: the "Office of Price Administration. I hope this is helpful. to make exact change, shopkeepers were issued small red and or blue tokens. They were made of a vulcanized fiber and were 16-mm in diameter. These basically were "small change" for stamps from ration books.
