Supporting the War Effort – Defense Stamp Albums

Supporting the war effort was a national responsibility. War bonds were sold in several denominations. For those who couldn’t afford them, the Defense Stamp Album of 25 cent stamps were issued. The owner could place 25 cents stamps in the book until it was filled. Then, it was treated as a regular bond with a maturity date. They were sometimes given as gifts.
