Old Ration Book and Holder for Ration Books

Two vintage items reminding us of the war when there was rationing of life’s essentials. One piece is an Ice Coupon Book issued by Weiser Ice & Cold Storage Co. of Weiser Idaho. The book was good for 1000 pounds and was never used. It measures about 3” by 5” in its closed state and is in very good, unused condition with minimal wear. There is a tear on the coupon sheet which I have tried to show in the photos and what appears to be a piece of rubber band attached to the back.

The second piece is a hard cardboard, red leatherette covered holder like a wallet for ration books. It is called a Holtite Cover and was manufactured by the A. Holum & Sons Co. of Chicago. It still has the original insert with directions for using the holder. It measures about 4 5/16” by 5 ½” in its folded state and is also in very good, unused condition with minimal wear.

Priced and sold as the pair.
