WWII Original Early Coin Holder For Bullets War Stamp Showing Early Army Helmet. An old store was being torn down and in one of the walls a stack of these WWII cardboard coin holders were found. Most were thrown away alone with the building but a few were saved and this is one of them. By the picture of the soldier's helmet I was told that this the style of helmet that was used at the beginning of the war. They were carried over from WWI but were soon replace with the type of helmet we all are more familiar with that is still used today. These cards held only one coin and this one has never been used. It did suffer mildew damage from years in the store walls and no one knows how they came to be there. But now is your chance to own a little know of piece of history. The card is 2 3/4" tall by 1 5/8". See pictures for more details.
