    A game possibly? My great grandfather was C. H. Shelly, and he worked for the railroad. My mom found this while cleaning my grandma's house. 20220923_222232.jpg 20220923_222249.jpg 20220923_222301.jpg 20220923_222321.jpg 20220923_222421.jpg 20220923_222434.jpg 20220923_222455.jpg 20220923_222457.jpg 20220923_222523.jpg

    This is the first thing I thought of, but then all the ration coupons don't make sense: Factory Throwouts Cigars | Cigars Rolled in America | J.C. Newman Cigars

    It's time like this that I wish my grandfather was still here. He would know what this is and a interesting piece of history that went with it.

    My first thought was ration stamps die to the dates but fed 41 was before the war started , but maybe its what they used for poker chips ?

    That’s my all time favorite comedy movie , ever .
    And stop calling me Shirley !


    And correctly predicted the future , in the scene where the old lady gets strip searched while in the background the Arabs are carrying bazokas through the airport .

    A few things, the box is cut in half and was a bulk cigar box for cheap cigars from the 30's.

    Second those are not ration stamps or rationing coupons, but I'm wondering what he actually did on the rail road.

    What did the other cards have on them?

    It could be he handed them out to people for food like soup.
