WWII 10 CENT WAR STAMP ALBUM & GREETING CARD: RARE

This is a 1942 Stamp out the Axis stamp album issued by the Greeting card industry, Inc. It was meant to be sent with a greeting card for birthdays and other celebrations, with the goal of selling War Bonds to finance the war. It was originally affixed to the inside of the card with a spot of glue. It has become detached, but you can glue it again if you want it in original condition. The only thing I don't have is the original envelope. Both album and card are unused. The album is 12 pages long, not counting the covers. The idea was to buy 187 10 cent stamps, paste them int o the album and then take it to the Post Office to buy a $25 war bond. condition of both card and album is excellent. The defects on the Eagle's left wing and the back cover are from the glue which was t originally.
