    Description

    Food Coupon Full $2 Booklet Series 1976.
    Two $1 coupons are in this booklet. All of the coupons and the booklet cover have serial number A17605132P. "B" Series coupons were printed by the United States Bank Note Co (USBNCo), while "A" Series coupons were printed by the ABNCo. Coupons without a series letter were printed by the BEP (Series 1976 and earlier). The booklet in this lot was printed by the BEP. The "G" at left center is for the month of production. In this case July as the lettering scheme is "A" for January, etc.). Replacements will not have a month letter unless they incorrectly receive the month letter overprint. Replacements have a "*" suffix in the serial number starting with the 1981A Series. Previously replacements lacked a prefix letter. Paper food coupons have been demonetized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and thus are fully collectible. Covers and the two coupons inside grade Uncirculated. The covers and coupons were glued together along the left edge during this era. And remember, single coupons are always more desirable when they retain their left end "tail" (selvage). Secretary of Agriculture Earl L. Butz's facsimile signature appears on the cover. Butz's signature was the last to appear on Food Coupon covers. The 1976 Series consists of only the $2 booklet and two blocks, A-P and A-Q. This example comes with a red back cover.
