War bonds, sold at banks, post offices and other financial institutions across the country, were an $18.75 investment. Those that might not be able to afford the cost all at once could purchase ten-cent stamps that were then collected in a Treasury approved booklet until they totaled enough for a war savings bond. By the end of the war, more than 85 million Americans, out of a population of 139 million, had purchased bonds. Sacrifice became a way for men, women and children on the home front to support the war in their own way; to own their very own share in America.
