World War II Postal History
War Bond (War Loan) Drives ~ 1943-1945

        The US Government organized a series of eight War Bond (or War Loan) drives. The First War Loan ran from Nov 30, 1942 to Dec 23, 1942, while the last drive, the Eighth or Victory Loan drive, ran from Oct 29, 1945 through Dec 8, 1945. This is a selection of 171 covers with cachets or cancels noting the War Bond effort. The first 43 covers note a specific drive (3rd to 7th), while the rest are on the general theme.
          Please order by cover number. Prices are cheap! They're way under dealer and auction prices. All covers will be sent by first class or Priority Mail. You, the buyer, pay only the exact postage plus 50¢ per order for packaging and handling.
       To make sure you get what you want, e-mail me at SwapMeetDave@aol.com and I'll set aside the items you want and ship them upon receipt of your check or money order. I also accept Pay Pal (pay to my account: SwapMeetDave@aol.com). Send your order with payment to David Ahl, 12 Indian Head Road, Morristown, NJ 07960. Thank you!
