This is a VERY RARE and interesting United States of America War Savings Certificate with a January 2, 1918 date, complete with 4 vivid green 5 Dollars Stamps from 1923.
Most of these stamps were cashed out and no longer exist. The few that do are often in worse shape than this set. However, this one is not mint as you can see in the photographs. There is spotting on the certificate. The fold lines on the certifcate have completely perforated the one side and nearly so on the other. The stamps are endorsed in handwriting with red ink.
The stamps have the classic George Washington portrait in the center. Folded out, the document is roughly 8" x 10".
Please, if you have any questions, ask in time for me to answer before the close of the sale.
