    like that other thread mentioned, they turn up on eBay, go there and set up a search agent that will email you results as items are listed

    This thread reminds me of sporting events I go to that have people near the venue holding signs that say "Tickets For Sale", and ten feet away are people holding signs " I Need Tickets "

    These old food stamps were illegal to possess if they were not issued to you, but since they are now obsolete and no longer used they are quite legal to own. I remember one time someone offered me like $10 worth for $5, no doubt so he could by cigarettes. Frankly I wouldn't wanna be caught dead spending those things - but I wouldn't mind having some for my collection sometime. Needless to say, I was not a buyer - even at a 50% discount.

    That is the great irony of food stamps today. Back in the day, they were sold at a discount by people on the program to get cash to spend on anything they wanted to.

    Now they go for 3-5x face to collectors.

    Wow, I didn't know that they went for that much. I always assumed they went the way of Green Stamps. No one wanted them anymore after the program was discontinued.

    I have a 50 cent coupon and always wanted to see what other denominations looked like. Don.F would you be willing to post some scans here, so members could have a look?

    I've always been confused why they didn't want you folding the note.

    I'm interested in buying a $1 and/or $5 food stamp(s). Does anyone collect them here on CT; or anyone tell me where to find them?
