    Savings Bond Purchase Certificate. Made out to the same young lass as the Disney certificate above, but this is one we've never seen before. It is a GPO product in the same format as the Disney certificates, but this one features Al Capp Lil' Abner cartoons highlighting Schmoos. Schmoos rose nearly to the level of a craze among young people in the post-War years. This cataloger had a set of plastic Schmoos nested together in varying sizes from about five inches to the inside tiny Schmoos about 1/4" high. The Schmoos on this certificate are pushing Thrift, Loyalty, Trust, Truth, Duty, and other patriotic endeavors, all in typical colorful Al Capp style. Undoubtedly rare, attractive and collectible.
