My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.
Do you mean World War II?
Is it possible your ration book is from England? I can find no reference to rationing in the US during World War I.
England did practice rationing in World War I.
Your World War II ration Book #3, if it is in excellent condition, has a current retail (replacement or insurance) value of approximately $3. That's because they are not at all rare. Everyone had them. I have some of my parents' books.
Can you post an image of one of your ship photos, please?
If you have any further questions or problems concerning your answer, please let me know.
If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again. All you have to do is put my name (Judith) at the beginning of your question.
