Note of the Month|
October 31, 2013
Food Coupons of this type, including the various varieties, were used from the mid-1960s through February 1975. Several different printers were involved with the manufacture of these pieces. This particular example, a full offset in retrograde on the otherwise blank back, was made by American Bank Note Co., even though the Bureau of Engraving logo shows at bottom center. We know the printer because the date, partially showing at upper right and readable as 1971A, so indicates, the letter A being the telltale designator. Normally the date is at the lower left corner, which is why it shows up at upper right on this retrograde example.
