Each set contains 10 sheets of "V" (for victory, of course!) paper and 10 envelopes, which proclaim "We'll win, America... Let's go!" The paper sheets measure 9.5 x 6 inches, and the envelopes measure 6.5 x 3.25. It comes in its original packaging with patriotic slogan, and a bald eagle by a stars-and-stripes V.

"It is your patriotic duty to write to the boys in our armed forces," proclaims this 70-year-old WWII stationery. This is an original vintage item from 1942.

Considering they are 70 years old (!), the stationery and packaging is in excellent condition, but it is not pristine. I have a few of these packs, and all of them have some minor ripping along the edges of the packaging envelope, and some of the sheets are a little bit discolored. But they are clean, uncreased, unfolded, and ready for some vintage-style letters or collectors alike.

I have not tested any of these papers yet for how they take fountain pen ink, but my experience with vintage papers is that most of them are quite good with fountain pen ink... after all, that's what folks back then would have been using to write their letters!

The shipping charges listed are to cover secure packaging in a padded envelope, and first class with delivery confirmation within the USA.
