I'm following the general rule that I've always heard, "Ration Books are not worth anything because EVERYONE had them!"
This is still cool!! I belonged to my great grandmother's brother, John Gordon, he lived in Midland, MI. I have 2, this is only one of them.

    They are worth something, valuable in fact, as it forms a link to an important time in our past & the hardships people (Uncle John) faced!
    I have 2 Canadian ones posted.

    Thanks, walksoftly, for the comment! You're absolutely right, they do have immense historical value, linking us to our past!!

    Minimal value but they do tell a great story of a NATIONS sacrifice during wartime!
