While moms, dads, brothers and sisters were serving in the Armed Forces during WWII, companies all across our country were making all kinds of patriotic toys and paper items for kids to play with. Today I'm offering for sale a 1943/44 store display of American Transfer Pictures with the original envelope, No. 9002, made by M.P. Company of New York.
On the front of the cardboard store display are 6 blocks of transfers, each block has 23 sheets and each block has 4 different transfer pictures. One sheet is missing from each block so there may have originally been 24 sheets on each block of pictures. So little boys and girls could purchase the transfers for a penny per sheet at the local home town store or the Five and Dime Store. Listed below are the four transfers found on each block:
Block No. 1: Joseph Stalin, Torpedo Boat, Motor Cycle Corps, Chicks and Butterfly.
Block No. 2: President Roosevelt, P47 Thunderbolt, Field Artillery, Collie.
Block No. 3: General Marshall, British Flag, U.S. Sailor, American Beauty Rose.
Block No. 4: Tiger, General Eisenhower, Flying Fortress, Paratrooper.
Block No. 5: Flying Boat, General Macarthur, Bronco Buster, U. S. Submarine.
Block No. 6: Chiang Kai Shek, U.S. Carrier, Sub Machine Gun, Tropical Fish.
*Condition of cardboard store display and envelope: The cardboard Store Display is in fair condition and the transfer pictures are in very good condition. The cardboard display is torn at many places and all of the tears have been taped on the back of the cardboard. There are three corners of the cardboard display missing(the top and bottom left corners and the bottom right corner). The envelope is in fair condition with tears on each side of the envelope.
*Condition of transfer pictures: The transfer pictures are all in excellent condition.
If you or someone you know were children growing up during WWII, you probably had patriotic tattoo's or transfers somewhere on your body and just maybe these were the very same ones you used. A great gift for a family member(The Greatest Generation Ever) that sacrificed so much in order to help our soldiers win WWII. God Bless Our Vets!
