War Savings and Thrift Stamps

Federal Thrift (World War I) and War Savings (World War II) stamps were purchased by the public as a means of accumulating small savings in multiples of 25 cents. When a sufficient quantity had been acquired, the purchaser could then exchange the stamps for an interest-bearing stamp (1919 only) or a certificate. During the 1940s, Newfoundland, as an independent country, operated a similar scheme using 10-cent stamps.
