Savings stamps were all the rage in the mid-20th century. Consumers would collect the
stamps with their purchases and fill up books like these. Stamps were given at J.C.
Penney's, gas stations, groceries and lots and lots of other places. Once full, the
books could be traded for merchandise. This has been replaced today with rewards
cards - but the idea is exactly the same.
There's something to be said for actually being able to touch the stamps and the
books. I remember going to the S&H Green Stamp outlet with my Mom to
pick out things like a cooler or thermos, small appliances, umbrellas and more!
These booklets are totally unused - there are no collectable stamps inside. So, you can
use them to alter, to collect your own stamps, or just as a collector's item. They
measure 6-3/8 inches by 2-3/4 inches folded and open to a full sheet 2-3/4 by 13
inches. There is room on each side for stamps. The booklet will hold 1200 stamps when
Two booklets are shown so that you might see them inside and out.
