This is another sideline collection that grew out of my passion for Depression Scrip.  I think this is a very under-appreciated subject for collecting as well.  Food stamp scrip is easy to find and inexpensive for the beginning collector.  It's also a great piece of history that most people only know minor details about.  There's a wide open field for collecting and documenting this piece of history for someone out there to embrace.  For now, I mainly concentrate on the paper scrip that was used.  But, I plan on eventually getting into the numerous tokens as well.

So, click on a state to see some great scrip.
