Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

I'm familiar with My Military Missal, by Father Stedman, which was carried in World War II, not World War I. Is it possible it's from that date? The copyright date should be in small type below the text, on the first inside page of the book.

That is possible. I can't find a date anywhere, just that it is edited by Rev Stedman with the confraternity of the Precious Blood in Brooklyn New York

Thank you.

Yes, this is from World War II, circa 1942.

Because so many were issued, a good number are still in circulation, which has kept the value low, about $30.
